Spanako-what?

January 21, 2009

“Spanako-what”, Jeff asks me when I told him last night what we were having for dinner.  “Spanakopita,” I say.  For those of you who don’t know, spanakopita is a Greek spinach pie made with spinach (duh), feta cheese, onions, and phyllo dough.  I’ve only had it at two local Greek restaurants, and it was so good both times – I’m pleased to say that Sarah’s spanakopita did NOT disappoint (she brought some pita chips and hummus to munch on while the spanakopita was cooking)!  Also, on the plate are homemade gingersnaps, and holy YUM – they will be gone by the end of the night, guaranteed.  =)

Sarah’s daughter, Olivia, who is just a little punkin, also came over.  She was more interested in pulling newspapers off our coffee table, and then neatly stacking them back on.  Oh, and letting Tara feed her – she likes snacks!  Doesn’t she look like she just got caught with her hand in the cookie jar?

Sarah came with Tara, who I had never met before (she and I met on a message board, and have become quick friends over emails and message boards) – and it was SOOOOO good to finally meet her!  And look what she brought me…I was most excited for the blueberries, cheese, and the bruschetta toasts, but everything looks so great!

Thanks for a great dinner, awesome conversation, and fun snacks, Tara, Sarah, and little Olivia!

Jeff is seriously the best.  Rex thinks so, too.

My friend, Kate, and her adorable daughter, Reese, came over tonight to drop off our dinner of chili and cornbread (and TWO loaves of banana bread for dessert – YUM!).

We just got done eating, and it was DELICIOUS!!!  Jeff had said something to the effect of “I hope she knows she’s in for some stiff competition” when he found out Kate was making chili (Jeff makes AMAZING chili, just ask anyone who’s had it), but I noticed while we were eating, he didn’t say much.  When I asked him what he thought of the chili, his exact words were, “it’s pretty good…,” which really means that he was very surprised at how much he liked it.  So, thank you so much, Kate!  We will have enough chili and cornbread to make at least 4 or 5 more meals out of it, so that’s fantastic!  I was just telling Jeff that we needed more freezer storage containers anyway, so what a perfect excuse to run out (or have Jeff run out) and buy some.  =)

I couldn’t close this post without showing you a couple of pictures of Reese, totally busted with her hand(s) in the candy jar.  Isn’t she the cutest?
