Tasty Tuesday – January 8, 2008

Yesterday I wrote about how sick I’ve been feeling. By the time my husband came home last night, I’d all but taken to my bed. My biggest problem? No energy. He asked what I wanted for dinner, and I told him I probably wouldn’t eat since I really had no appetite. Looking through the fridge, he pulled out bacon, spinach, eggs and mushrooms and announced he was going to make a hot spinach salad.

It didn’t sound all that appetizing, but I sat at the table while he and Little One ate, thinking we at least could make a family dinner out of it. Grudgingly I took a bowl of salad. Then I ate another. Before I knew it, I’d had three helpings, and darned if I wasn’t starting to feel better! Now I know this salad has bacon grease in it, thus it can’t really be called healthy. But the iron in the spinach, the protein from the eggs, the heartiness of the mushroom and the warm comfort of the bacon really revived me. And the best part about it was that it took Hubby all of 20 minutes or so to make the meal. We had some good bread with it, some milk to drink, and it really was satisfying.

This morning I looked online and found this recipe. Try it when you want something refreshing yet comforting. To make it more of a meal, toss in some grilled chicken. Yum!
