News Blast: Today is National Spinach Day!<< All Articles
Now I happen to be one of those people who enjoy spinach, especially fresh spinach.
There’s little better on a hot summer evening than a cool spinach salad filled with nuts (lots of nuts), dried fruit and fresh too, bacon (lots and lots of bacon), and one or two thinly sliced mushrooms. No need to go overboard on the veggies, seeing that it’s aspinach salad.
As for cooked spinach, not so much…unless it’s cleverly disguised in cream or made into a cheesy dip. Preferably a lot of cheese and only a little spinach, because a leaf or two of cooked spinach is so very good for us.
And while we’re on the cooked spinach with melted cheese theme, I also love my Spinach Enchiladas and Spinach Lasagna!
Happy National Spinach Day!
