(if serving two)
You can save grams of fat by just using one tablespoon of olive oil or only serving the finished side as a condiment, like on sandwiches. Frozen raw spinach is a great source of vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin K, calcium, folate, magnesium, manganese, and potassium. Spinach even contains a little bit of omega-3's and has tons of lutein, which is great for keeping eyes healthy. Go Popeye and eat a bunch!
Tomorrow, Rick and I are leaving San Jose and driving all the way down to San Diego again. I'll miss it up here so much and I do hope we can visit again for Christmas. At least I'll have more time to cook in my little kitchen again.
