I couldn't get the kale to do right, so one of my bloggers suggested spinach. A light bulb went off in my head. Before I ran across kale, I kept saying I would give spinach a try.
I went and bought a very small can of it! LOL...and it was decent, but I wanted to be able do it the right way. I got swept up into work and personal life things, so I forgot about it. Thank goodness for my Mi-ettes!
I gave spinach a whirl!! I bought a big bundle of spinach and googled a recipe. Guess what pops up?! The same recipe I used the first time I cooked kale. I was very, very skeptical but I told myself to go for it. This was a totally different green from kale, so I didn't want that to stop me.

the pic fool you...that hamburger helper was dabomb.com!
Try it (Patty Melt)!
I guess I should mention this as well. Anytime a recipe calls for garlic, I use minced garlic (in extra virgin olive oil), which comes in a jar. I think this garlic tends to have more of a citrus-y taste which can affect the flavor of some foods. With this recipe it definitely did. The next night, I cooked spinach again but this time I used garlic powder instead. It was much better. I'll get brave one of these days and actually try to cut a clove of garlic, but for now...I'll stick with what I have.
So, with all that being said...spinach was a hit. I really appreciate all the suggestions from the kale post and I'm very much looking forward to trying more new things and sharing it with you all!!
