Thursday:

Spanakopita (Greek spinach pie)

The Spanakopita, also known as the Greek spinach pie, is a savoury pastry with its origins in Greece. The pie, made with flaky filo pastry, is traditionally filled with spinach, leeks, spring onions, feta and a variety of other herbs and spices. We love that this version of the Spanakopita only takes 40 minutes from start to finish. It’s the perfect meal for lunch or dinner and is great for summertime feastings with friends and loved ones.

Sunday:

Slow-roasted lamb shanks with aubergine-and-tomato stew

Aubergine, also called eggplant or brinjal, is a plant species in the nightshade family, which is related to tomatoes and potatoes. Many cultivars exist, with aubergines being either white, green, purple or black skinned.

Aubergines are rich in antioxidant phenolic compounds; they also contain flavonoids, like anthocyanins – water-soluble pigments – which boast many health benefits, and which are responsible for giving aubergines their lovely colour.

Something to drink:

Sunshine piña colada jug

“If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain
If you´re not into yoga, if you have half a brain
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape
I´m the love that you´ve looked for, write to me, and escape”
