Canned Spinach -- Is there anything worse?
Monday, March 15, 2010
I grew up hating spinach. I mean, couldn't even smell it. My mom loves spinach and tried to get us kids to eat it over and over.
Now I'm eating spinach salad, stuffing spinach into chicken breasts, putting it into sandwiches, and layering it in my baked ziti. Well, tonight DH says I have outdone myself.
We wanted pizza and I didn't want to pay for junk. So, I picked up a Red Baron cheese pizza, a red bell pepper, a couple of Italian tomatoes, some mushrooms, and a can of spinach. I added a little bit of smoked mozzarella to keep the veggies from falling off. And I rinsed and squeezed the spinach. It went great with a mock Caesar salad. Well, now DH wants me to fix this pizza for the rest of the Fridays in Lent. He's already planning his menu for next football season!
Used to be DH wasn't happy unless I fried chicken or smothered some steak.
