It seems like every summer, I eat a ton of spinach. Yesterday I had ten cups of spinach, today It looks like I will be eating an entire 'Organic Girl' container of it with Strawberries, sunflower seeds, rye croutons, and briannas poppy seed Dressing!<br><br><br>
Does anyone else adore spinach?<br><a href="http://theveganproject.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/spinach.gif" target="_blank">http://theveganproject.files.wordpre...05/spinach.gif</a>

I couldn't figure out what the tomatoes were, LOL. How do you make homemade croutons? The plate is extremely cute too!

I take a hard loaf of friend (like a hard kind of bread, often sourdough) and cut it into squares, season thoroughly, and dehydrate or bake until toasty!!

Wow, that's easy..<br><br>
Back to the topic of spinach: What else do you use it for besides salad? I'm the weird one who will put the spinach leaves (HATE canned/frozen spinach) on baked potatoes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Fresh spinich + mashed tofu is pretty yummy in Italian dishes (lasagna, calzone, and so on). Plus easy easy easy ...<br><br>
But ya gotta be careful your biceps don't move down to your forearms. Time to lay off the spinach then. Segar's Syndrome ya know ...

I love spinach. I love it raw and cooked but I hate how it wilts up and shrinks when cooked.</div>
</div>
<br>
I kind of love that, it's like magic!<br><br>
I put half a bag in my pasta and it almost disappears! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I'll admit, I don't like spinach when it gets wrinkley and shrinky when it's cooked >.< but that's a texture thing.

It's a "where the **** did my spinach go?" thing for me. (I get the texture thing though.) It's a disappointing magic trick because I don't like good things disappearing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">.

Totally. I buy a ****ing pillow case full of spinach, and I end up with a handfull after it's cooked.<br><br>
Still love it, though.
