Is your Mouth of Chi blocked, cluttered or just plain messy? The Mouth of Chi* is a term used in Feng Shui*. It references your front door, the primary point of entry into your home (or office or cubicle), whether you favor that door or another. The Mouth of Chic is much like our physical […]
Greetings One n’ All, I spent all day yesterday; yes, every second of the day (no exaggeration), researching, perusing and deciding on what appetizer to make for tonight’s potluck dinner. There are five of us bringing a variety of dishes. I was assigned appetizer/hors d’oeuvres. I have my own criteria when cooking. Simple. Easy. Simple. Healthy. Simple. Tasty. Simple. 🙂
Anyway, I zeroed in on and decided to go with my (slow cooker) Spinach Spoon Bread that has on occasion brought forth orgasmic sounds. Yes, I used the “o” word!
Again, I do love my slow cooker. The dish was mixed and poured into the slow cooker at 7:30 a.m. My work is done for the day! I am singing a happy, healthy and tasty tune.
Here is the Spinach Spoon Bread Recipe
1 (10 oz) box of chopped spinach, thawed and drained of liquid
1 bunch of scallions (5 or 6 in the bunch) sliced real thin
4 small sweet peppers, red and yellow, chopped minus the seeds, of course (You can substitute one red bell pepper if you must. If you like.)
1 cup (8 oz) cottage cheese (2% or 4%…sometimes I go full fat, what the heck)
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon salt (I get this loose designer salt at the food coop. It’s top end and I really do think it makes a difference. Go ahead…splurge)
1 package corn bread mix, approx. 6 oz. (I go for the organic corn bread mix. Again, the best ingredients make a world of difference.)
Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix!
Spray slow cooker with non-stick spray.
Pour ingredients into slow cooker.
Cook on low for 3.5 hours
When done, carefully place the spinach spoon bread dish on a platter and garnish with sweet peppers, jalapeno stuffed olives. Use your imagination. Go colorful. Go wild! Take a photo and post in the Kick in the Tush Club/FB!
Spread the word–NOT the icing!
