Because we're having baked chicken & baked potato! I need to use both. So everyone suffers, bwahaha haha!
We're also having Trader Joe's Fire Roasted Vegetables (frozen but I add fresh spinach and omit the water in the cooking instructions on the bag, it's really good.
I add fresh spinach to tons of things, I added it and a little salsa to my toddler's quesadilla at dinner and he ate it! Yes! Score for Mom and the hidden vegetables, it hasn't worked very well in the past.
Someone else thinks maybe I use too much fresh spinach, that it didn't belong in last night's dinner, quesadillas with shrimp and guacamole. I sauteed the shrimp in cilantro, olive oil, garlic and sea salt, then after awhile I added the spinach. I put it all in plenty of melted cheese (a Mexican cheese blend) on large flour tortillas. While I can see the point that shrimp quesadillas would have been good without the spinach, I didn't really have any fresh peppers or something else to add to the cheese, and I always like a little vegetable in that kind of thing... anyway, I maintain that fresh spinach rocks.
