I miss spinach!!

LoDega Nov 1, 2006 10:20 PM

It's still nowhere to be found in restaurants or my awful local grocery store. We're allowed to eat it again, right?

GRRR!!!

    I still can't eat it raw (and boy do I miss a good spinach and bacon salad), but I did buy it frozen this week for turkey meatballs. My husband was not amused. He ate the meatballs, but very grudgingly.

      I switched to Swiss chard for cooked food, and it tastes so much better to me. I haven't missed the spinach very much.

        Really? You don't find it way way too sweet? Most people I know switched over to arugula which is going the other direction to sharpness.

          No, because I usually cook it with garlic and pepper sprinkle, which takes the edge off the sweetness. I don't like arugula much -- too peppery.

        Yeah, we've been eatting it for a while now, but for my dinner parties, it's still off the menu... We use baby chinese cabbage leaves instead, which look similar and already had a couple of guests ask 'just to make sure'...

        *sigh*

          I've eaten it a few times since my supermarket put it back on the shelf. I'm still alive and doing well...I think...! I'm in the Boston area.

            I was at Whole Paycheck buying it this morning- it's here in DC.

              I don't know what part of this Great Nation you live in, but out here on the Left Coast we've had it for awhile. In fact we are going to have a hot spinach salad tonight. Don't worry, it will soon be on your favorite market. Happy chowing...

                Right coast too... have already had spinach 2 times since the ecoli scare, including ohitashi today.
