Love Greek food? You're going to love this one!

No, it's not a recipe, it's ready made spanakopites, baklava and tiropites!!! There are two catches though. First, you have to wait until MARCH to pick them up (think of the wait as an appetite builder) and second, you have to live somewhere near Peachtree City as that's where you have to go to pick them up. Fortunately, there are a lot of people within driving distance of the Church... Tyrone, Fayetteville, Newnan, Sharpsburg, the list goes on... if you're in Fayette County, Coweta County, Meriweather County, Spalding County or Clayton County, you can get to Peachtree City fairly easily, do a MapQuest on the address below).

Here's a bit about the good things they're doing at the Church, plus how to get your Greek favorites (homemade, too):

The Ladies Philoptochos (Friends of the Poor) Chapter of the St. Christopher Hellenic Orthodox Church in Peachtree City held its third annual Valentines Tea-Luncheon Fundraiser last weekend.

Attendees were treated to a variety of American Indian teas, Greek appetizers and other delicacies. Entertainment was provided by Ali Ramsaier, who sang and accompanied herself on keyboard. Philoptochos Chapter President, Julie Skouteris, gave a brief introduction to the accomplishments of the chapter and how it serves local and international charities. All proceeds from the event will be given to charity.

The next fundraiser is the bake sale of Greek favorites: tiropites (cheese filo triangles, $6 per dozen), spanakopites (spinach and feta cheese filo triangles, $6 per dozen), and Baklava (layered filo, nut and honey dessert, $18 per dozen), all handmade by the members. To place an order, contact Helenngeorge@comcast.net or call 770-487-1004 prior to Feb. 29th.

St. Christopher Hellenic Orthodox Church is a member of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Atlanta and serves Orthodox Christians of all nationalities throughout the south and west areas of Atlanta. The church is located at 313 Dividend Drive in Peachtree City and was established in October 2003.
