Dear yogurt & granola: What is spanakopita?
yogurt & granola says: (from Wikipedia) Spanakopita (< σπανάκι spinach + πίτα pie) is a Greek spinach pie, made with cooked spinach, phyllo pastry, butter, olive oil, feta cheese (not always), green onions, egg, and seasoning. Several layers of phyllo pastry are used as a two-crust shell if the spanakopita is baked in a pan. The filling can also be rolled up in phyllo pastry to make individual triangles. Once baked, it is golden in color. In Greece, it is mostly eaten as a snack, an alternative to tyropita. In restaurants it can be served with tzatziki sauce and a Greek salad. It has become a popular item in Greek restaurants in the U.S., and is served as either a light meal or an appetizer.
Click here for a recipe from a neato blog. I don't know what recipe Laura used that night that she brought it over here and I never plan to make it. Phyllo dough is too, too fussy for me. But I love eating it and adore people who bring it to me!
Dear yogurt & granola: What pattern did you use for the pumpkin hat?
yogurt & granola says: Fiber Trends "Ear Cozies," also a "gift" from good friend Laura. Click here for a link to their site, though they don't sell patterns online. You'll have to search your LYS for a copy.
