Dregs (Kατακάθια)

One thing I'm pleased about these days is that the kids are becoming more independent. They make their own dakos meals these days. As I watch them, I get the idea that they feel they are preparing a sumptuous meal.

If you could ever get yourself to overdo it with the olive oil, and you find a thick film covering the plate after you ate your dakos salad, don't despair - just mop it up with some bread and enjoy it. If you aren't hungry at that particular moment, put it in the fridge for the next day. 

It's still a little difficult to teach them not to over-do it when pouring olive oil over the paximathi (rusk). Phrases like 'go easy with' and 'olive oil' do not collate well in Crete.
