Later this weekend, I started planning to make veggie fajitas. Then it dawned on me that what I was really craving was veggie souvlaki from Ziziki's down in Dallas. So I decided to try to recreate it.

The basics of this are...
veggies (roasted potatoes and grilled everything else)
pita bread
tzatziki sauce

I marinated the veggies overnight. I did mushrooms, peppers, red onions, asparagus, zucchini, and yellow squash. I wanted little tomatoes...but they were just too darned expensive!!!

1/2 cup lemon juice
3T olive oil
3/4 tsp salt
fresh ground pepper
1 Tbsp fresh oregano

When we were ready to cook, we threaded them on skewers. Then I sprinkled them with Cavender's Greek Seasoning. I meant to do that earlier but forgot.

I roasted new potatoes in the oven with more Cavender's and a bit of olive oil.

I made whole wheat pitas - super easy. I used regular whole wheat flour in place of the whole wheat white that it calls for.

And I made some fresh tzatziki sauce. I won't share my recipe b/c I'll try another one next time. But it's pretty basic.

This was delicious. A huge hit for the grown ups. The boys ate pitas and turkey. We agreed that the leftovers were even better for lunch today.
