32th instalment in the Food project series

I had this phyllo dough in my fridge for a while already. I decided to use it with spinach and garlic. Since I had no feta cheese I decided to use a section of the huge mozzarella ball I bought on special at the supermarket (see project 33). I threw in a couple sunflower seeds. The phyllo pastry dough was not the freshest one. I could not achieve the colour I wanted (baked in oven). Great and easy recipe.

These food-supply lorries are quite likely Dennis 3-Ton lorries. Powered by a four-cylinder engine, they had a top speed of 55mph. During World War I more than 7,000 of these Dennis 3-Ton lorries were built for the British Army.

In the decade before war broke out, the British Army had been planning how large automobiles might be used in a future conflict. The general staff realised that lorries would be required to transport troops at high speed. Part of this forward-thinking strategy was for the army to requisition motor transport from firms and public services during a wartime emergency, at a yearly rate of 15.
