Spinach and Garlic Potato Patties – Delicious and flavorful Patties made with a mixture of potatoes, spinach and garlic.

Hello, pretty friends! Happy Sunday! Hope you are enjoying this wonderful winter-break and all the Holiday things that the Season brings!

I went to do a bit of discount-shopping on the 26th and was met with a hoard of thousands others that decided to do the same thing! Darn it!
As I approached the Holiday-themed aisles, I realized that just about everything was gone. A big red sign that read “50% OFF on Holiday Decor” was the only fixture still standing. DAMN!

Then I went to Macy’s and bought a new dress. Shoes, too. I plan to look good on New Year’s Eve. Clonk!

Fingers crossed I won’t be lookin’ good just for my living room, you know what I’m sayin’?

However, IF for some odd reason I end up staying at home, my new fleece pj’s, yogurt dip and a bowl of these potato patties will be happening.

I have a loving relationship with things shaped into patties. Or fritters. Or meatballs! You know… Anything that needs shaping into a bite-size treat.
Well, this is more like a two-bites treat, but you understand.

Also? If you’re ever in need of spinach-recipes, stop by! I have LOTS!
