Recipe 1

On very rare occasions, my husband either has to go out of town for work or has to go to meetings that keep him out of the house until long after dinner time.

I take advantage of these very rare occasions and make meals that I otherwise couldn’t because he wouldn’t eat them.

My husband doesn’t like veggies aside from the typical starchy ones.

On top of that, he’s not much on the whole pasta dish for dinner unless it’s his favorite (Lasagna) or a heavy one with lots of butter and sauce like Chicken Alfredo.

Mushrooms and Spinach

I love mushrooms. Love, love, love them!

Even as a child I ordered mushroom pizzas. I also loved salads as a kid, still do!

I could eat salads every day for the rest of my life and be perfectly happy.

This dish is one that’s light, but satisfies that starchy craving for me.
