Cooking with Jake :: Sauteed Spinach and Tomatoes

My husband, Jake, loves to cook. I've talked about how great his cooking is in a previous post. I've always asked him, "Why not be a Chef?" He continually shrugs his shoulders and says, "I love to cook for you and if I cooked all the time, I wouldn't at home; I wouldn't enjoy it anymore." My response: Sorry world! He's all mine, but I'll share with friends and family (sometimes).

While making lamb chops earlier in the week, he threw together a great side dish of sauteed baby spinach and tomatoes topped with Feta cheese.

Take approximately 28 cherub tomatoes and saute them in about a tablespoon of olive oil, a 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt, 1/2 teaspoon of thyme, and pepper to taste.

Then add a large handful of fresh baby spinach leaves. Jake isn't much for cooking with measurements, so adjust your seasoning by taste. Allow the baby spinach to saute until slightly wilted. Do not overcook. Then add a handful of Feta cheese. Stir gently until melted. Serve immediately.

This made approximately 4 servings. I've already had it 3 times this week. In fact, I'd love some right now! It's 6:39 am and he's out fishing, so I may have to wait a while! Enjoy!
