Legend, I often substituted chopped broccoli for chopped spinach in recipes when my children were small. They "thought" they didn't like spinach, so I'd swap out spinach and use broccoli in recipes calling for chopped spinach. As time went on, I reduced the amount of broccoli and added the spinach back in until it was back to the original all-spinach recipe. They never knew what hit them until they discovered spinach wasn't so bad after all.

Lefse, I hope you feel better fast!

We tried a great new grilling sauce on our chicken tonight--ginger orange. I served it with rice and stir-fried veggies (peas, broccoli, squash, and carrots). It was the first meal I've had in several days that tasted really good!

I am reheating three Italian sausage links I previously cooked and froze. I am combining them with some spaghetti sauce and Bailla Plus multgrain rotini, and crusty Italian bread. Oh, and a salad, of course.
