Lamb Shish Ka Bobs

Lamb is the traditional Greek choice for Shish Kebabs.

While in Italy, we saw all the famous places in Rome, Florence and Venice, where we bought beautiful glass items to take home to our children. We also visited Pompeii and the Blue Grotto, which I believe is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. From there, we went by ferry to see sights in Greece, including the Parthenon and the Coliseum. Our last night there, we had dinner at a rooftop café. The entire city glittered with lights. It was spectacular! And so was the food. We chose this lamb Shish Kebabs recipe with Greek rice as our favorite.

12 fresh mushrooms
12 small onions
2 green peppers, cut into chunks 

For marinade, combine wine, garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano. (The Greeks like a lot of oregano.) Reserve about 1⁄4 cup marinade for basting during cooking.
