Lunch Box 381: Spinach is weird. [Jun. 13th, 2007|07:24 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , , ]

Donburi time! Here's a pork, bell pepper, and mushroom donburi. To be precise (as Thompson might put it), it's a serving of my mom's pork chops cut into bite-sized pieces and served over rice. Sticky rice this time - my recent adventure with regular Uncle Ben's rice reduced me to eating it with a plastic spoon. I will not endure such shame twice.

On the right side is a vaguely geometrical collection of steamed yellow squash, baked purple sweet potato, and boiled spinach with mayonnaise. Yes, I eat spinach with mayo. I mix it up into a weird-looking green paste. My sister and I both think it's delicious this way; I haven't met anyone else who will even try it. Maybe it's genetic.

Given that ranch dressing is basically flavored mayonaise, and a spinach/ranch dressing salad is Exceedingly Yummy... dunno why people wouldn't try it.

I never thought of it that way.

While I don't particularly like boiled spinach, I've grossed people out with something similar. I like to eat turnip greens with gravy, which makes a wierd looking brown and green paste! My motherinlaw can't even watch me eat it she's so appalled by it! I'm glad I'm not the only one who does strange things with green food!

I can't eat boiled greens - spinach, collard, etc - without lots of mayo. It grosses others out, but straight up they're just ugh.

I drown my cooked spinach in vinegar; always have. I'm very fond of the tangy. Took me a long time to discover a small fondness for fresh spinach, which of course gets whatever I feel like dumping on greens in general at that time. :)
