Oh, hello there.
It’s me, the girl who can’t quit Feta Cheese.
The sad part is that my husband is not really a Feta fan but has to endure this Feta infatuation while patiently and kindly trying to pretend that he doesn’t notice. Or pretend he likes it. Or maybe he is just a good sport!?!
The good news is that I am sure this phase is almost over, well… maybe after we have some Greek Salad.
