I chose four recipes for this week’s dinners:
1. Spinach and Feta Bake
2. Chicken Soup
3. Feta Shrimp
4. Southwest Spaghetti Squash.
Tonight I decided to do an easy one and went with the Spinach and Feta Pita Bake. The recipe is found on allrecipes.com. This was basically a disguised pita pizza. And you know how much I love my pita pizzas.
Spinach and Feta Pita Bake – adapted from allrecipes.com
1 whole wheat or multi-grain pita bread
sundried tomato pesto (to cover the bread, not sure of the exact amount)
1 roma tomato, chopped
1 handful of spinach, chopped
1 mushroom, chopped
1 tbsp and 1 tsp reduced fat feta cheese
1 tsp grated parmesan cheese
spray of olive oil from misto
freshly ground pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
2. Spread tomato pesto onto one side of pita bread, and place it pesto side up on a baking sheet. Top with tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, feta cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Drizzle with olive oil and season with pepper.
3. Bake for 8 minutes.
This was good but I realized something. I bought Publix brand feta cheese and I don’t like it as much as Athenos brand. The Athenos brand is softer. Anyone else know what I mean? I’ve noted this before, but forgot when I bought the cheese.
I did a bit of googling about the houses that we looked at yesterday. I knew it was too good to be true. They are in a very bad school district. The houses are sort of between a nice area and a not-so nice area and while they are actually in the nice part, the schools that they feed into are not. I don’t know if Jason and I are going to even have kids, but being in a bad school district brings the resale value of a home way down. Plus, if we do have kids, I want them to go to a good school and don’t have the money to send them to private school. I was very lucky growing up. I went to public school the entire time but the public schools in my county were very, very good. Granted, I lived in the DC suburbs and not the city. I really want to live ITP but the schools just generally suck. What’s a girl to do?
Did you go to public or private school? If you are planning on having kids, where will you send them?
