Strong to the Finish


 [tweetmeme source=”WCWD” only_single=false]

Want to be strong to the finish? Then you eats your spinach, like Popeye the Sailorman! Although spinach in the early 20th century was a slang term for marijuana (ever wonder why Popeye ingested it through a pipe and lost all ability to speak, not to mention any sense of grammar??), we’ll stick to the labeled meanings and not get Glenn Beckian into any hidden messages and agendas; true or otherwise. The real problem with being green, is that well, it’s easily boring. So here’s a simple way to kick up your spinach. Of course you could always add other things to spinach as well [hit here to reminisce over theme music  Popeye theme; here for modern rendition

Creamy Baby Spinach and Feta

  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1Tbs chopped shallot
  • 8 oz baby spinach
  • 1 Tbs mascarpone cheese
  • 2 oz feta cheese

Heat the oil over medium heat in a medium sauce pan. Add the garlic and shallot and cook 1-2 minutes, until shallots translucent. Add the spinach. After the spinach has cooked and reduced in volume, and is bright green, add the mascarpone and feta. Cook another 1-2 minutes; salt and pepper to taste and serve.
