Now, my little family "likes" spinach. I love it in a salad, my husband tolerates it, and my children (loudly) acknowledge its existence. I love it in soups, and I love it steamed. My husband tolerates it in soup, and he only likes it steamed if bacon is involved. My kids
like love bacon. So why do we buy the huge bag of spinach from Costco?
More often than not, we drink our spinach! I'm addicted to green drinks. And my husband/offspring? They love it! Seriously. Both of my kids request green drinks. And when they hear my blender whirring, they start doing little happy dances. I love that they love it, almost as much as (if not more than) the drink itself. I'll be sure to post a recipe soon, alongside a pic of some of the cutest green mustaches you've ever seen ;)
So, back to the freezing. If you've ever had good intentions of eating your greens, and end up buying them in bulk, only to find out that it's not so easy eating that huge bag of spinach before it goes bad, then you're not alone. Been there, done that. But, there is a solution! Freeze those leaves. Here's what I do: Stuff two HUGE handfuls of spinach into one freezer bag. I get about 10 freezer bags' worth of frozen spinach out of one large bulk bag. Pop them into the freezer and they're good to go, all fresh and ready for all those yummy soups, drinks and the like.
Going green has never been cooler. *B
