Before we moved here, I had grand plans of hosting meals at our place. We even upgraded from our two person table, that could really never accommodate any more than the two of us, to a four person one that could easily squish six people. In the end we’ve been here since April and I have yet to host a single meal. I have had people over to play some board games (great, nerdy board games) but didn’t even serve snacks. For shame! Anyway, the point is, for those of you who have people over for meals and such (particularly breakfast), these eggs are a great way to serve eggs and not have to stand by the stove, flipping or stirring. On top of that, I love breakfast for dinner and this is a great one. It’s a very hearty, satisfying meal that can be eaten as a nice brunch, but pretty much any other meal of the day as well. I made this for the first time a while ago. I used up the last of my tomatillo salsa by putting dollops of it all across the eggs. As soon as I ate it, I knew it had to come up here.
It took me a very long time to realize that I should make spanakopita at home. It’s one of those things that is so easy to replicate in a successful way but it just never crossed my mind. I committed to making it and bought tons of spinach and then couldn’t find the phyllo dough anywhere. I don’t know why it was so difficult to find. I suspect that most of the places that I went to had it but that it was hidden somewhere in the frozen section and I just kept walking past it over and over again. Eventually though, a helpful employee pointed me to the right aisle and I was off on my spanakopita adventure.
