Spinach Feta "Pizza" on French Bread Crust #fridayfoodie  

(adapted from Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home)

This has been a favourite of mine for about 20 years, and it's perfect for Friday night because it's so fast and simple and delicious. 

Ingredients

1 loaf french bread
10 oz fresh spinach (a largish bunch), coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 C chopped scallions (red onion works really well, too)
1 tsp dried dill (or 1 Tbsp fresh)
1 C crumbled feta cheese
1 C ricotta cheese (cottage cheese subs nicely here)
ground black pepper to taste
2 tomatoes, thinly sliced

1. Preheat the oven to 300 F. 

2. Saute the spinach in oil until wilted, just a couple of minutes. Transfer to a colander and press out the excess moisture with a spoon.

3. Mix together the spinach, onions, dill, and cheeses in a bowl. Add pepper to taste.

4. Slice the bread loaf lengthwise. Spread the mixture evenly over each half. Arrange the sliced tomatoes on top. 

5. Bake in the oven until done, oh, about 10 minutes? Keep an eye on it and take it out when the topping gets melty and the bread starts to brown around the edges.

Serves 4.

Up for adoption in Edmonton/Leduc/Devon!

A quirky and cute tabby who became a "community cat" - looked after by caring neighbours - since last winter's last, brutal cold snap. If you were taking a walk down our street, chances are this guy would be following close behind, hoping for a chance to get some pets. He is an extremely lovable, non-dominant, lap-loving male who thinks the best thing ever (except for petting) is rolling around on a carpet with a catnip toy in his jaws. 

If you'd like to be this guy's forever friend, please contact whiskerrescue@live.com(ask about Ted).

My cat does an amazing Pikachu impression. This is not it. Tonight he is not in the zone. But he will accept cuddles.  #caturday

On Netflix! Anyone who loves Canada should watch this documentary about Canada from 1969. It's fascinating and actually pretty funny, too. A view from a helicopter of the ten Canadian provinces in 1966. The result is a big, beautiful and engrossing bird's-eye portrait of the country.
