So. I bought this bag of spinach, with great intentions of using it, and it sat in my fridge for a week.
For some reason, at that point I decided to get serious about using it up (a few leaves were starting to get funky!), and so for the past few days, I’ve been eating spinach like it’s going out of style. I added it to my scrambled eggs twice, added it to a salad, and made two green smoothies.
I’m happy to report that I finished the whole bag off just yesterday, except for a few yucky leaves.
I am always delighted when I manage to use up all of my green leafy vegetables, partially because they’re so nutritious but also because they are so perishable…it’s a triumph to not waste them.
Especially when you waited a whole week to start trying. Which is not such a triumphant thing.
I don’t have anything to throw away from my fridge currently, but last week, I had to get rid of half a bratwurst and about a cup of rice.
