Spinach was a gateway green for me, now it's too wimpy!

Spiked has always LOVED spinach. When he was 12 or so, he worked in a small grocery store making deliveries and stocking the shelves. I would get some items there occasionally. I always bought two bags of spinach for the family. I told Spike if he wanted more than his share, he had to buy his own bag and I would cook it for him. So he did. Maureen always gave him her helping if I wasn't looking.

I remember Wimpy, didn't know he had first and second names. Learn something new every day.

The Pirate is working today. YEA! He called to say he is filthy, but he is going to stop and pick up a large fried calms for me. So I have the shower already for him. He can shower while I pig out of my clams. But while I am waiting for him, I am hanging laundry, and doing other little chores around the house.
