My dad's 68th birthday would have been this past Sunday September 9th. It's been 3 years plus a few months since his repose. We made "spanikopita," or spinach triangles, which he loved, to share at the meal after Liturgy: https://www.thespruceeats.com/spinach-pie-with-feta-spanakopita-1706022
Although this recipe isn't exactly what I did, it is similar...I simplified it.
I bought a package of Pepperidge Farm puff pastry and cut the 2 "sheets" into a total of 18 squares.
I put a dallop of the spinach, onion, egg, feta in the center and folded it over pinching the seams. I brushed egg on top.
While our girls headed back to school this past Tuesday, I have been back to the books, too. The Good Pilot Peter Woodhouse by Alexander McCall Smith, Joy in the Morning by Betty Smith (because I enjoyed her book A Tree Grows in Brooklyn so much),and Educated by Tara Westover. I recommend all of them!
My newest niece, Angelica, is now a month old. Her big sister, Juliana, is holding her, she can now change earrings, after getting them pierced last month.
I found a Monarch caterpillar in our yard it has been there for 2 days and I'm hoping to see it grow and develop into a butterfly!
