 This week’s steal is spinach. Plain and simple.

Plus the spinach wasn’t even rotten or close to being rotten! The expiry date isn’t until the end of next week and there was not a slimy leaf to be seen in the entire bag.

I made spinach salad for dinner just to celebrate (note that I do realise this spinach salad leaves much to be desired, more than one cherry tomato for example; but one was all I had. No feta cheese, no strawberries, no pine nuts, nothing but spinach and broccoli and one cherry tomato):20110915-082101.jpg

Then I made a spinach smoothie for breakfast just because I could. (Actually I didn’t because I slept too late this morning. But I dreamt about making one and my dreams are very vivid.) If I had made one it would’ve looked like this:Sweet straw and all. Image from here.

And want to know what else I stole this week that was also green and edible? Snow peas. Off my own snow pea plants. Which I planted from seeds. In June:

The day I picked them was the happiest of my life.

Let’s hear it for cheap produce.

    For real? That bag of spinach normally costs $5? That same exact spinach is $1.99 here, on a normal day. I buy it all the time. And I also dream of spinach smoothies.
