Remember I told you I was in bed at almost 3 a.m. adding to my grocery order? I’ve always heard to never go grocery shopping when hungry. Let me add . . do not buy groceries when half asleep.
I was very thankful Vince was not helping unpack the groceries when they arrived yesterday.
When I was adding to my order Thursday night way late, I remembered I needed spinach. The first one I clicked on and added two packages was small. Then I saw one that was larger so I added two packages of that, meaning to go back and delete the first two. Then I realized both of those were organic and I don’t usually buy organic. I saw the big tubs that were non-organic and I added two of those. Did I remember to go back and delete the other four containers of spinach? No! When I started putting the groceries away, I thought “I didn’t order SIX tubs of spinach!” Then I remembered . . I did.
You can bet there will be lots of spinach added to our meals over the next week or so. Today I’m adding spinach salad to have with our soup. I just use fresh spinach, boiled eggs and water chestnuts. Then I use French Dressing. Delicious!
1/2 c. oil
1/4 c. cider vinegar
1/2 small onion, chopped
1/4 c. sugar (and maybe just a tablespoon more) The recipe originally called for 1/2 cup sugar.
2 T. Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 c. ketchup
I use the stick blender so I stick 1/2 an onion (not chopped) in a wide mouth jar, add the remaining ingredients and stick the blender in there and blend til everything is blended.
