Spinach

I remember when I was in kindergarten and one day we were discussing foods or vegetables and what we had for dinner the night before.  The subject turned to spinach and one of the kids remarked that he was allergic to spinach.  Several other kids chimed in that they wished they were allergic to spinach as they didn’t like it.  I mean, it was what gave Popeye his strength, right?   I felt sorry for them as I really liked spinach. And I still do.  Raw or cooked.

Did you know that Alma, Arkansas is the Spinach Capital of the World?  Or that they have a park dedicated to the most famous spinach eater/lover ever? Me and the Man

  1. Oh, my goodness! That allergic lie did not work for me! In my generation, spinach was mostly slimy gunk out of a can! In my 30s I was introduced to frozen chopped spinach, microwaved, with onion, salt, pepper, butter, and topped with cheese! A whole new vegetable! I love it, now!
