Good morning, dear friends! Today we are making lagana! Lagana is a greek traditional bread that Greeks bake once a year on Clean Monday, that is the first day of Great Lent before Easter. My hubby made it and he really made it yummier than the storebought one! So proud of this guy! He is an awesome baker! On the contrary I am not so good at recipes that have to do with doughs. This flatbread is so easy and quick to make! Not to mention how yummy it is!

I would like to thank you for your partecipation in the Biosophy giveaway! The lucky reader who wins the 60 euro gift card is Evi Goulogoudina! I will contact you dear so that you receive your yummy goodies!

Happy weekend everyone! Enjoy yourselves and have fun!
