Posts here are going to slow way down for a bit as I adjust to my new apartment in Greece, and get the kitchen stocked up. Meals so far have mostly been very simple, as there isn’t much in the way of cookware in the kitchen (although there’s a store with cheap pots and pans down the road a ways…), and I can’t read food labels at the supermarket. So far I haven’t seen things like baking powder/soda, vanilla, or chocolate chips, but I will get searching. I have found the produce, meat, and cheese shops, which is the start of something interesting.

1.60 euros, or around $2.11 from the produce place

As well as not having a ton of equipment, what we do have is a bit…different.  For example, here are the knobs to turn on our oven – the left one in mostly 50 degree (Celsius) increments, the right one to select which heating element(s) to turn on. Interesting, but pretty imprecise, temperature-wise.
