I can't cook

OK. It's now been firmly established that I can't hold a candle to my wife when it comes to cooking.

Given the same ingredients (frozen spinach, cheese, spices) I managed to make a meal that looked like what you'd find deposited on the windscreen of your car, while my lovely wife made a dish worthy of a restaurant. Surf on over to her post (pictures and all) to see what I mean.

In my defence, I must say that my concoction didn't taste bad at all. It's just that, looking at the photographs, it really looks like some bird had massive diarrhoea over my plate.

why do you have frozen spinach?!? Is this some latest popeye healthfood thing?

Wow. I'm impressed that she actually ate what you made. She must love you very much and have an iron stomach! ;)

She didn't eat what I cooked. She ate her own cooking, and scrupulously avoided mine. But she did consent to taste it.

Her food looks much better, frozen spinach and all. Is this based on your mush recipe?

ampulets > Frozen spinach actually tastes pretty good, once in a while ;) in its own special frozen way.

eurr, but eet ees not so much a recipe as ... le technique, a mode,oui?

Yes, well, funny french accent aside, it's a mess really. I mean, honestly when I saw the photos, I had to admit it looked like s**t.

Speaking of funny accents, Speak Like a Pirate Day passed me by without so much as a yarr (except from T, who remembered). How disappointing. = (

Squeeze out the water when the spinach melts. You can then wrap your spinach cheese (get feta if possible) ingredients in filo pastry, bake and have a Greek party!

I love cooking with frozen spinach too.
