4.5 pounds of spinach


In an effort to be necessarily conservative (and healthy!) with our monetary resources, Matt and I have worked on making smart food purchases. The other day, when at Costco, Matt noticed that a 3-pound bag of spinach only cost $3.00. Falling in line with our food purchasing goals, Matt bought the bag and brought it home. What he didn't realize, is that the day before I had found a 1.5-pound bag of spinach on sale, and so we now had 4.5 pounds of spinach on our hands.

I have since been scrambling to find recipes with spinach. So far, we've had a spinach salad every night (although the toppings have changed from almonds and mandarin oranges to mozzarella cheese and mushrooms), and I cooked up some "spinach and eggs" for breakfast the other day. I always send Matt to work with some spinach salad (while I eat some at home), and we are planning on lasagna (with spinach) and a spinach salad for this weekend.

I hope this means we are getting enough "dark greens" in our diet.

Try a spinach artichoke dip . . . that will use a lot of it.

steam your spinach, chop it up, and put it in little zip-lock bags and freeze! It's a great way to store it because it goes bad fast.
By the way, Kye is still not excited about his job. He will be on a more intense new job search after Christmas.

Bec--we actually tried the spinach artichoke dip yesterday, and it tasted great! I'm excited for leftovers tonight.
