Ingredients: In the original recipe, there are ingredients for the pastry, but I just bought the pre-made filo pastry stuff. Dough: buy it pre-made. So much easier. Filling: 2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil 3 small sweet (white) onions, diced 1 large bag (in Switzerland, you can get a large bag) of spinach. In America, you […]
Dark green leaves, sliced apples, thinly sliced red onion, grated carrot. Olive oil and apple cider vinegar dressing. Something I made up on the spot. Add something for protein, and you have a great lunch.
Last week, my father-in-law brought two ginormous zucchini and four eggplants from his garden. He seemed happy that somebody wanted them. I llooooovvveee eggplants and zucchinis. Love ’em.
