Spinach and Goat Cheese Galette-016

Y’all know what today is?

Today may or may not mark the first day of the rest of my life.

As you are reading this, my husband and I are more than likely sitting in my Drs office looking at our little cuddly tree frog on the ultrasound anxiously awaiting the phrase, “Congratulations, It’s a….”

But, honestly, I’m not even sure if they will be willing to venture a guess yet!

Today I am 17 weeks which is far enough along for them to tell us the the sex of our sweet one, but it is really all going to depend on whether or not the little pumpkin is cooperating or not.

Ugh, I really don’t have the patience for such things!

And that is why I made this super simple spinach and goat cheese galette for tonight’s supper.

Now, for those of you who don’t know, a galette is nothing more than a fancy schmancy way to say tart.

Seriously, it’s nothing but a pie crust with some toppings on it, but let me tell you…it is absolutely DE.LI.CIOUS. and the fact that it barely took any time to throw together definitely makes this one of the top spinach and goat cheese recipes in my repetoire.

For the pie crust, I used this recipe. It was perfectly flaky, perfectly buttery, and the perfect accompaniment for this savory dish.

This is one of those recipes that you’ll be happy you have in your arsenal.

You can totally throw this together for a last minute get together, an unexpected overnight guest, or for a quick and easy brunch!

I suggest making your own dough since you can control the portion size better (and because it won’t be full of soul shattering chemicals) however, if all you have is a store bought pie crust then go ahead and use it!

It’s going to be gobbled up in 10 minutes flat any way.

    3 in one week! I’m so very glad you’re feeling better!! I obvi don’t have kids. I think you’re having a GIRL! I’m not sure why…maybe because you and I are girls? Not that that makes any sense. I’ve given a lot of thought to girls’ names, minimal to boys. Not sure why that is, either? I think boys’ names are more boring, I guess. Whatever your munchkin turns out to be, I’m sure s/he’ll get a great name, and I’m sure y’all will be GREAT parents!

  • It’s like a tart and a pizza had a wonderful lovechild 🙂 Congrats and good luck on finding out your baby’s gender!
