spinach supreme

Spinach is good for you...we all know that.  It's just eating it that seems to be difficult.  Growing up, we ate it out of a can (very exciting, let me tell you).  As an adult, I started eating it as a salad.  Both ways became boring to me.

Fortunately, spinach is a versatile vegetable!  After playing around a bit, we discovered that this is an absolutely delicious way to eat it.

First, saute some mushrooms and onion in butter until they are tender.  Love the aromas coming from this skillet!

Stir in some salt and pepper, and then dump some fresh spinach into the skillet!  Stir it around until it starts to wilt.

Just a brief minute later, and you've got an amazing side dish!
