sauteed spinach with garlic.
I’ll just tell you right now I’m not sure your kids will eat this spinach. At least mine didn’t. I even tried adding some raisins on top.
Oh well. More for you.
Truth be told, I was really hoping my kids would gobble this spinach up and I could snap several pics of them blissfully munching away and
gloat over include them here…you know because now that I have a food blog and all I figured my kids would rise to the occasion and make me proud. But I’m afraid all I have to report is that they wanted nothing to do with it all. Then again maybe I shouldn’t be surprised…just yesterday Emma insisted we make butterscotch fish popsicles for Mama Kitty. So just shows you what she knows about good food.
I made this spinach when bunches were on sale for $.99 per bunch. Oh but please be sure to wash the leaves well. Do you ever wonder how spinach gets so filthy? Also, it’s on the dirty dozen list so wash away!
Sprinkle a little lemon juice on top, swirl in a little butter, and maybe top with a few raisins (or maybe not).
Do your kids eat spinach? Do you toss it in smoothies? Throw some in brownies?
Tell me your tricks! I’m all ears!
