Greek. Meal. Bowls.

That’s fine. Say no more. I am on board.

In this particular situation, I’ve not photo’d the tzatziki sauce, but it will be in your recipe. I mean, it’s just a big bowl of Grecian goodness that will not leave you bored. At all. It is the more complicated of the bunch, but it’s not that bad. We can do this. I mean, we can’t take a photo without my housedress. But we can make and enjoy this.
