Lunch was good. I had about 12 asparagus stalks, cut off the ends and cut into 2" lengths.. put in frying pan with a little water. Added in a drained can of sliced mushrooms. Let cook at high boil 3 minutes. Drained. Added back into pan with olive oil, some thawed edamamé. Added in fresh flat leaf parsley leaves and rolled up some fresh basil leaves and sliced them... Added in some leftover spaghetti.. with a very light sauce. Heated through. Plated and added LOTS of Parmesan cheese.
With this I had a tiny glass of San Antonio Chianti! OMGOOOOD!!!

Fresh Spinach Day (I can do that!)
Fresh Spinach Day is our opportunity to put healthier food into our diets.
Popeye the Sailor is right. Spinach is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. It tastes good, and there are many recipes. Many people turn up their nose to it, without even trying it.
The reason for eating fresh spinach, is the nutritional value is highest, when it is fresh and uncooked.
Celebrate this day by introducing some fresh spinach to your meals today. You could start by mixing in some spinach into your garden salad. Your family may not even notice, but by doing so, you are making them healthier!
Gardeners know that spinach is easy to grow. And, it's hardy. You can plant it as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring. Why, that's today in many parts of the country! More on Growing Spinach.
There is another day that we celebrate this healthy vegetable. It's National Spinach Day, celebrated on March 26th. We think it is great that there are two days to celebrate this wonderful vegetable, and to encourage people to eat healthier.
Did You Know? V-8 Vegetable Juice is not just tomato juice. It includes 8 vegetables. One of them is Spinach.
