Miraculously, spinach survived the brutal cold we had in February. Brutal for South Texas anyway.
Spinach is good for you. Though I do not recommend the canned spinach that Popeye used to eat. Unless that’s all you have available. Nor am I much a fan of frozen spinach, which seems more like mush to me.
Give me fresh spinach!
What can you do with spinach? You can use it raw in a salad. You can sauté it, which is my favorite way to cook spinach. You could also use it in an egg dish or a stew. It’s really versatile.
Interesting factoid: I once had a cat named Grayson. One day, I had put some fresh spinach in water in the kitchen sink. For some reason I left the room and when I returned, there was Grayson on the floor with a giant piece of spinach!
It turned out that he absolutely LOVED spinach. He would often ask for it, so we would give him a few pieces on a saucer. Sometimes, he would be in the kitchen with me meowing. After a while, I realized that he was actually asking for spinach! I guess there could be worse things for him to eat.
Grayson says: “Eat your spinach!”
Stay tuned for more seasonal veggies next week! Recipes are coming too, with video!
