I'm not best friends with spinach. Popeye fan that I was as a child, I never could never grow to like it. That changed when I found out about lightly sauteing fresh spinach leaves. This, I like. I also love warm spinach salads, but that is a topic for another day.
Tonight I made another dump meal of Mediterranean Chicken. While that went in the oven, I went to play RockBand with the kiddo of mine. Oops, I forgot about the side dish. I wanted something really quick, so I decided to saute the spinach I had left over from this week's salad. This turned out to be a cross between a sauteed veggie and a scramble. The flavors are simple and real. Nice for a side dish. Very pretty too.

This is a nice side. The garlic comes through and contrasts nicely with the vinegar of the Italian dressing that marinates the chicken. John just told me this dinner was Olive Garden quality. He may have just been buttering me up to make amends for hurting my feelings a bit earlier today, but he is usually pretty honest about his food ratings. Maybe I'll try making this again soon and see if he still likes it as much!
