The French toast made with cranberry walnut bread was pre-holiday meal #1. Tonight I will move right on to meal number 2 with Spanakopita, a Greek spinach pie. I’ve spoken of this before, even made it for Mom and Dad in October when I was in Utah. I didn’t take any photos then and hope to get some great pics tomorrow.
It will be a party like setting with friends and we’ll eat drink and make merry till we bust a gut. Or something like that.
I first had Spanakopita several years ago while in Greece with my sister. I haven’t been able to get enough of it since then. I did make the mistake of adding too many eggs once and it was too eggy instead of custard-like.
I imagine there will be some humus or pesto tomorrow night along with a little wine, but not Retsina as I doubt that is available here. Maybe a crock of roasted vegetables. Yea.
