A few weeks ago we went to the wedding of our good friends, Natalie and Mark. We were so excited to go, not only to share the joy of our friends but also to eat! You see, Natalie and Mark were married in the same place as John and I, so we were delighted to finally take the food, because we do not eat the day of our wedding. One of my favorite foods at your wedding, the spanakopita, which was during the cocktail hour had passed. If I ate less than 5 would surprise me, fills me whenever the topic turns!
After gorging myself on them at your wedding, you think I'm sick of myself, but … I needed more. So I decided to do my part to try at home. I remembered a recipe for Annie's blog for a long time, so I dug up and closed it. They were surprisingly easy to make and so delicious. I sang my own praises, as I ate, I said a kitchen goddess (Yeah. .. I know … I'm not proud). Combined with a simple Greek salad and called it a day. Perfect meal in my opinion!

I repeat, consists of a triangle (there are videos of this on youtube, if you're confused.) Insert the seal at the bottom on a baking sheet. Repeat until all the triangles are formed.
