They then put a ring mould in the centre of the bowl, filled it with spinach and poured the soup around it. The also put a half a baby potato cut side up (with three chives in it) in the middle of the spinach before removing the mould, for presentation.

There, is that inspiration for your bag of spinach? Either that or you can invite Popeye over for dinner!
I'm just as apt to be Popeye and eat it plain That's my favorite way.

No leaks (those are like onions, right?), no chives, no lemon juice, no ring moulds, no baby potatoes (grown up ones though).... you're talking to me here .
Thanks for the thoughts, though

I did figure you for the popeye type but thought I would try. After all, if it is good enough for the Canadian Forces......

And thanks for the flowers - at least this kind won't make me have an asthma attack!

Of course, Suzi, no problem. Just one question....would you be bringing Lego Girl? I might have to lock up my cake decorating tips!

And what, may I ask is wrong with Thai two days in a row? I think in Thailand you will find they eat it 7! I certainly could have it more often than we do!

Thanks. I woke up early Saturday morning with just a slight sore throat. Should have stayed home but went to garage sales in the rain with my daughter and granddaughter. Well, by the time we got home I knew I was in trouble. Mega sore throat, coughing, the whole bit. Finally feeling a little better tonight. Oh, well we did have a good time, got some great things.
