Just a short one

It seems like I’m always trying to catch up,and sometimes when the week isn’t anything remarkable it just sort of slides by. The first week of February was kind of like that, except for one recipe,  a baked Spinach and Artichoke Spread.

Superbowl Sunday it was just Michael and I. It’s not that we don’t enjoy having company, we certainly do, but when it comes to football (and the Superbowl commercials) we prefer to concentrate on the show. We tend to get so wrapped up in entertaining our guests that we miss most of the action. The down side to not having company is that there are only two of us to consume all the football food, and there is always an over abundance. I can’t help it!  Spinach and Artichoke Spread makes 24 servings. Even when I set aside half for Emily’s upcoming birthday party, there was way too much for the two of us. It is a splurge food. We knew better than to over-indulge, and we didn’t, but then what to do with the rest? I dutifully stashed more than half of the dish in the fridge until I could figure it out. As often happens, the answer came to me during the night. Meatless Monday’s dinner became Spinach and Artichoke Pasta! All I did was thin the spread out with a little milk to use as a pasta sauce and it was delicious! We even had part of the baguette left from Sunday to serve on the side. I made sure to add our
House Salads to round out the meal. Even Michael enjoyed that Meatless Monday more than most of the vegetarian dishes I offer him.
Be thankful for what life gives you.
