Have y'all heard of spinach pie? 
The first time I ever heard of it was when I met my husband. His mom made it, he loved it, I thought it was the weirdest thing ever.
I wasn't very adventurous, nor did I know much about food back then. I mean, I didn't even really know what the heck cream cheese was. I have come a very long way!
So, When I tried this "pie" the first time, I thought it was weird, maybe a little good, but I was sure I didn't want to eat it again. I did promise my husband I would make it for him though.
Throughout making this for him, I changed up the recipe and adapted it to be more of something I might would like too, and now I love it!
