A garden is the best alternative therapy.

Tonight, we made a homemade alfredo and started the dish off with a nice mixed salad of three types of organically, home-grown lettuce (Red Sail, Cosmo Savoy & Buttercrunch) … and, for the first time ever, a generous helping of hearty, earthy and rich tasting spinach for each of us.   We typically buy Central Market baby spinach and occasionally some of the organic spinach bunches, but this spinach was unlike any I’ve ever had before.  The wide crinkly leaves of this variety are thick, so it has a lot of substance in the mouth, yet the flesh is tender.

Now I understand why Popeye was crazy about this stuff!  🙂
