Take a little trip to Greece with this easy weeknight meal of Pork Souvlaki with Feta Tzatziki Sauce and a side Greek Fries.

When it comes to dinner during the week there’s really only one thing on my mind, I want it easy and I want it on the table fast, oh and I want it to taste good too. Which means, I tend to fall into the dreaded weeknight dinner rut, the same things on a regular basis because I know I can cook it without having to think about what’s happening in the kitchen.
You know what? That’s boring, I’m not boring in the kitchen but I feel like I’ve gotten that way. Cooking dinner used to be fun, it should be fun – even during the week for a simple meal.
The problem is I don’t plan ahead, usually in the morning I open up my freezer take a look what’s there and defrost it for that evening. There goes any opportunity to marinate or prep ahead to make dinner more exciting.
For dinners sake, I hope you actually do meal plan and don’t decide on things by the seat of your pants like I do. Mostly because all the meal planners out there can actually enjoy this pork souvlaki on a weeknight like it should be, the ingredient list might seem long and daunting but I promise you, a lot of that work is inactive – all it takes is 5 minutes or prep the night before or in the morning before you leave for work to get the pork into it’s flavorful marinade. After that, dinner practically cooks itself, seriously it does.
You see, I’ve stopped with those big weeknight dinner productions a long time ago. I found if there is an answer out there that can help feed me faster without compromising my no added junk in the food morals than I’m for it. That answer is Alexia Foods frozen sides and more specially their organic line of fries. I love that they are all-natural, with real ingredients and just taste good! My personal favorite are the Organic Yukon Select Fries, do you see that golden color? This is the real deal.
So since the souvlaki was ready to go, it was only natural to have some Greek fries along side it – a little sprinkle of feta and oregano and your fries are taken to a whole new level. Let’s not forget our dipping sauce though! Put away that ketchup for the evening, Greek food means homemade tzatziki sauce, it’s fresh and a real winner.
