i think i am still full

from the dinner we had last nite!  i finally made the chicken souvlakia last nite.  (you can find the recipe HERE)  it is super yummy and a pretty healthy, yet delicious recipe.  we had the chicken with flatbread pitas, a spinach salad, zucchini roasted with olive oil and all purpose greek seasoning & whole wheat orzo with evoo and feta cheese.  so, so yummy!















and, it would have been so healthy, if i hadn't made this:















homemade shortcake and whipped cream with strawberries.
Shortcake:
1/4 cu sugar
2 cu all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cu butter
1 beaten egg
2/3 milk

Grease 8x1.5 round baking pan; set aside.  Mix flour, baking powder, and sugar.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Combine milk and egg; add to flour mixture.  Stir just to moisten.  Spread batter in prepared pan.
Bake in 450 degree oven for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool in pan for 10 minutes.  Serve with fresh berries and whipped cream.
