The key to delicious, flavorful Seasoned Spinach and Bok Choy is all in the saute’.
Here we are in the middle of February and by now you have celebrated your love for someone this past weekend. Out hearts grow strong with love. I know that mine does. But guess what folks, so does spinach! Remember Popeye even said that it made him strong to the finish. My little brother always thought he was Popeye. He always made me pretend to be Wimpy. I’m not really, but he was my little brother and my older sister always got to be Olive Oyle. Ah, childhood memories are so wonderful. I often wondered how my girls were gathering their childhood memories. But every now and then they will say “Mom remember when”…
One story that I do remember about my girls was the year Caitlin turned 6. Her birthday is in March. For her party, I decided that each little girl would get their own “cake”. I made heart shaped cakes for each one (there were 6 girls invited). To this day she still remembers how I made six cakes. One for each of her friends. That is how my heart stays strong.
Today, the Sunday Supper movement is sharing heart healthy recipes so you can keep your heart strong and healthy. I love the added deliciousness from the bok choy as well and they blended together fantastically.
