Meal Plan: My Big Fat Greek Mother’s Day Party

Meal Plan: My Big Fat Greek Mother’s Day Party

(Above: Mothers, daughters, cousins, and nieces all celebrated Greek food in the RootsLiving kitchen.)

After an amazing trip to Greece last month, Trish asked for a “Big Fat Greek Mother’s Day” party for herself and her cousins and our niece, Jenno. So I whipped out the Greek cookbook I bought and with a little extra help from Julia Child came up with this menu.

This Greek dip is healthier and less fattening than sour cream based dips, but tastes just as good, if not better.


  • Tzatziki
  • Spanakopita
  • Stuffed Grape Leaves

Main Course:

  • Country (Greek) Salad
  • Moussaka (non-traditional, a Julia Child recipe)


I made everything myself, except for the Spanakopita (spinach and cheese fillo appetizers) and (rice) stuffed grape leaves, which I bought at Christo’s Market in Arlington, Mass.
