Sunday, The Day Of REST!

I like to observe the Sabbath and keep it Holy.  So, today is left-over day. In other words, I don't cook.  I take out all of the left-overs from the week and place it on the island in my kitchen and allow everyone who comes by to dig in to all of the fixins.  It's a great day to invite over close family members to try out your various recipes for the week and enjoy catching up without the hassle of cooking.

If you want to try to make something (the night before) out of the dishes I made this week, then here's a spin on some of the left-overs you can use to make something fantastically different..POTATO EMPANADAS!

Left-overs That You Will Need:

Twice-baked potatoes * Greek Pea Dish * Olive Oil

New Stuff You Will Need:

Pastry/Pie Dough Rounds!!

How You Do It:

1. Take out the dough from the plastic wrap.
2.  Roll it out until 1/4 inch thick.
3.  Use a large round cookie cutter and cut away!
4.  Meanwhile, In a bowl...take the inside of the potatoes
     and Greek Peas and mix.  This will be your filling.
5.  Take the potato/pea mix and scoop a spoonful into one of your cut rounds.
6.  Take another round and place on top.
7.  Close the edges with the back side of your fork.
8.  Lightly brush olive oil on top (or butter if you're not fasting from it!)
9.  Place in oven at 350 degrees until brown (around 8-10 minutes).

Place in your fridge for a new dish on Sunday.  Reheat and serve!

I hope you all have a wonderful day at Church and enjoy the lovely sunny day God has brought us during Lent!
