Greek (style) menu

This is probably Jim's favorite menu. We had this last night with our friends Joe, Marybeth, and Hank (Debbie was out of town). We didn't have baklava. I made a peach cheesecake instead because peaches are so delicious right now. Mary Beth brought an incredible Kentucky Derby pie filled with chocolate and pecans. She also brought a delicious insalata caprese for an appetizer. I know that it's not Greek, but tomatoes and basil are so wonderful right now that this was a perfect starter. For a more Greek appetizer, buy or make some hummus and tzadziki sauce and serve with pita chips. You can also do a nice platter of olives, roasted peppers, and pickles. If you can buy good baklava, I would definitely buy that as well. In Knoxville I can't get decent baklava, so I have to make it.
