Baked eggs with spinach and Parmesan cheese

baked eggs with spinach and parmesan

I love Christmas and New Year holidays. Even, here. not being the Christmas spirit so palpable as it is in Sao Paulo, where since ends of October start preparations  and the glass trade  compete to see which one is cute than the others or hughe presents are arranged in bank's facade and giant Santas are sitting on the roof.

Christmas set

But, perhaps  here the spirit is not so public, but I bring in my heart and represent in my house with decorations and details. Of course, with so many details I do not have time for cooking and our dinners and lunches have been very frugal. Yesterday I had frozen spinach and served over toasts. My husband loved it and told me - I love your vegetable dishes because it tastes ...;) I hope that you also like
