Greek Style Spinach-Feta Pie & Heirloom Tomato Salad
This evening I was in the mood for my Greek Style Spinach-Feta Pie. I also happened to have a pound of organic fresh baby spinach that needed to be used. I had some heirloom tomatoes left from this weekend that I wanted to use up, so I made a quick and easy Heirloom Tomato Salad with them. I simply diced them and seasoned with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, fresh dill and then drizzled and tossed with extra virgin olive oil and a splash of pomegranate infused red wine vinegar. It was simple, fresh and delicious. I repainted my kitchen this weekend (which is why I didn't do any posting). What I thought would take a couple hours ended up taking me 14+ hours??? Don't ask me why, other than I am a perfectionist...LOL. I painted from 5:00-10:00 pm Saturday and 8:00-5:00 Sunday. I was totally exhausted when I got finished from standing and climbing up and down the ladder for so many hours...so last night was a rotisserie chicken night; I was too tired to even make a salad to go with it! So...tonight's dinner seemed extra good to me. I snapped a few photos right before the storms rolled in. There was thunder rumbling in the distance and the wind was picking up. So far, we have close to 16 inches of surplus rain this year (and rain is in the forecast every single day through Saturday this week). It's such a drastic change from the droughts we've had almost every summer for awhile now. I had hoped to get the chance to repaint my patio table, too, but the weather this past week made that impossible. The good thing about all the rain is that this is the greenest July I ever remember seeing! The recipe to my spinach-feta pie is linked above (in the first sentence). This is definitely one worth trying -- it's one of my favorites. Enjoy!
