Many of you will remember Popeye the Sailor man, Olive Oyl and of course the baddy Bluto. He got incredible strength from eating the green stuff 'strong to the finish' 'cos I eats my spinach'. In fact spinach was accredited with far more iron than it actually had/has back in the 1930's when Popeye first appeared. It is still nevertheless a great leafy green vegetable packed with vitamins and iron.
My spinach has been coming thick and fast, I've been picking it regularly to keep it cropping. I've been using it in a coleslaw, as salad leaves and as a parsley style dressing on top of dishes. I actually prefer it raw to cooked, I definitely couldn't do the soggy wet tinned stuff. Yuk.
My salad spinner and julienne slicer are ancient but I love them. I'm not a gadget person and I think long and hard before I buy one. It really has to earn its place in my drawer. What gadgets have you found invaluable over the years? Have you got a gadget you can no longer purchase? I look forward to hearing from you. Bye for now. Tx
