As I continue to combat my jet lag, I thought I would have a few friends over for dinner. This would force me to clean my apartment as well as not go to sleep in the middle of the afternoon. To inspire my dinner plans, I received a new cookbook which arrived while I was Down Under: Foods to Live By , which I learned about from someone I met on a plane to California. From this book, I prepared a Greek Salad and Grilled Tahini Chicken with Eggplant and Mushrooms. Both were a HIT! We even ended up with 2 desserts, which made for a very happy ending.
