Nearly vegan

My dad and his lovely lady came to visit last week and it was a chance to cook something delicious for all! Since they aren't vegan I thought I'd throw them a bone in the form of some goat & feta cheese. First I assembled a salad of spinach, pecans, goat cheese, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and some red onion. Then I dressed it with a homemade dressing of olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard and maple syrup. Then I roasted the potatoes and garlic. I used a new method to do the roasting. First I cut the potatoes and put them in a bowl with olive oil, peeled garlic and salt, then I covered them with foil and cooked them for about 20 minutes at 400. After the 20 minutes was over I tossed the potatoes and garlic and baked them for another 20 minutes. The main part of the meal was Spanakopita from Costco. I totally cheated and didn't cook it by hand and it was delicious!
