Greek Spanakopeta & A Giveaway!Comments : 31 Posted in : Appetizer on by : Chris Tags: appetizer, side, side dish, spanakopeta
I have a wonderful giveaway to share with you today; a cookbook! And this delicious spanakopeta you see taunting you? Yep, it came from that cookbook. So be sure to enter for a chance to win.
But first… a story!
Obviously today is Valentines Day. It’s pretty hard to miss that fact with all the pink hearts, signs for roses at the gas stations and convenience stores, and Hallmark stores filled with men. And while this post might not immediately seem romantic to you as compared to some other food bloggers pink frosted cupcakes and heart shaped cookies, I assure you it is.
See, I made this dish with my valentine, my sweetheart. I’ve been cooking with her for over 10 years. We’ve cooked together in our parents’ kitchens as young college students, cooked together in my tiny apartment in Japan when Rachel came to visit me when I lived abroad, cooked together on a campfire overlooking the majestic Grand Tetons during sunset, and cooked together as new homeowners on a propane range when we were gutting our kitchen. Loved it. Love her.
We enjoy spending time together in the kitchen. And now we’ve got a little helper in the kitchen with us who likes to assist by bringing us our slippers, tupperware lids, his water cup, or anything else he can manage to carry as he takes his little baby steps. Love it. Love him.
So while this post might not outright seem romantic or valentine-y it is, because, like every other dish we craft together in our kitchen, it was made with love.
Ok… On to the giveaway!
Two lucky winners will receive signed copies of Opa Cookbook – a collection of inspired Greek and authentic Greek cuisine. See following for entry details. Good luck!
