May 22, 2011 - Greek food is delicious. So when we saw signs that a local Greek church, Nativity of Theotokos, was having a food festival we definitely wanted to go. As predicted, the food was great – we feasted on gyros with grilled pita, tiropita (cheese in phyllo dough), pork skewer with oregano and a bit of lemon, dolmades, walnut cookies dusted with powdered sugar (think: Mexican wedding cakes / Russian tea cakes), and a slightly sweet custard inside phyllo pastry. Everything was delicious, particularly the gyros and desserts!
After lunch we drove and walked through the Chancellorsville battlefield. It was a beautiful, sunny day. Highlights included seeing the Jackson monument marking the site where he was wounded, a nearby grave of an unknown Union soldier, the location of the Chancellorsville Inn, canons sitting in now-peaceful grasslands, Confederate trenches in dense forest, and views across rolling fields bordered by heavy woods.
