“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Leonardo Da Vinci
NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It’s my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian ‘Quote Cup’ passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, along with an update and photos of what has been going on in our lives. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!
RECIPE OF THE WEEK
I have loved spinach since I was a child, and when I saw this recipe that the contributor said his Grandma used to make I had to try it. A purist at heart, my favorite spinach is simply sauteed with butter and salt and pepper… but this is an interesting alternative.
