Quite frequently we will have a wrap based meal on the weekend. The reason for this is that they are quick to prepare and we set the meal up so the children can participate in preparation and can self serve. This really helps to make the meal a family event and an enjoyable experience.
Tacos are a hot favourite in our house, but the children also like making a homemade souvlaki. Souvlaki seasoning can be bought but I make a very simple and easy souvlaki seasoning. It is a mild version of the authentic version, but I find that this is more suitable for the kids.
- 1.25 tablespoons dried oregano
- 0.5 teaspoon sea salt
- 0.5 teaspoon cracked pepper
Some people add dried garlic to the mixture at this point, I prefer to add fresh garlic when cooking the meat.
- Mix together!
- Add to your favourite meat during cooking process.
