Everyday Food

With May came a new issue of Everyday Food and inspiration to try some fun new recipes.
Yesterday I tried Spinach-Feta turnovers. These were a fun little pocket of spinach, feta, onions and garlic sandwiched in a square of puff pastry. They were a bit of work being that the puff pasty had to be rolled out, but the bonus was that it makes plenty extra that I froze for a future meal.

Here is the stuffing:

They were folded together, using egg wash as glue, and edges crimped.

After 35 minutes at 375 degrees - wa la. The puff pastry was light and buttery. I'd love to try these again, maybe more like a Mexican empanada next time.

Tonight, Brian made chicken sausage with asparagus over grits. Very tasty!

Mmmm...I love spinach and feta =) I hope the feta was pasteurized (wink wink).

Yumm!!!!! I'm not too keen on feta, but it sure does look scrumptuous! Does it allow for substitutions?

Don't worry about the South Beach regime this weekend. We're going to have fun!
