Fabulous Food Fusion

Often throughout the year I've posted recipes that make me happy. 

Today I made a dish that both surprised me and helped clear out some veggies in the fridge.

Do you like garlic?  Veggies?  Then here is a dish to try:

I'll call it Garlic and Greens

I'm sure you can add whatever you find that's green in the fridge (veggies wise, not mold wise)

I used:
1/2 head/stand(?) of Bok Choy
7 cloves garlic
1/2 TBS butter
2 handfuls spinach
block of fresh feta cheese 1" x 3" ish
tsp sesame oil
seasoning:  onion powder, paprika, salt, tumeric(little) and some awesome spice I found at whole foods called No Salt seasoning

-Saute garlic until fragrant
-add Bok Choy (halved and cut on its diagonal) and saute until slightly wilted and just barely showing -translucency
-add spinach and continue to saute until spinach is mostly wilted
-season to taste

Remove from heat in a serving bowl and sprinkle with Feta to taste

Eat while hot and feta is beginning to melt

Oh. So. Good.

It'll be helpful if others in your vicinity also eat this as the sheer amount of garlic is more potent than..well... it's pretty potent.

This, as far as I can tell, is a Greek-Asian fusion...

In other news, my 9 month old has been crawling for about a week now and is teething at the same time.  Not sure if her crankiness of from wanting to get around faster or getting 4 teeth at the same time.

Anyone know if it hurts the little ones as the teeth are growing in or just as they cut through the skin?  Wish I knew.

I'll try to post more often, promise.


  1. In my experience (both ways - mama and doc), it hurts for both the moving in the jaw and the cutting through the gum. Worse with the cutting through, though!

  2. Oh Goodness, My eldest teethed forever, she seems ok, just really cranky and getting up for hours an night.
