For dinner tonight I tried something new. I used some vegetable spray in a frying pan to cook a chicken breast and then i cut it into strips and threw it on top of a bed of spinach. I sprinkled it with a small amount of cheese and then topped it with some Italian dressing. It was delicious! I have only ever had canned spinach before and I freaking hate that stuff. My mother traumatized me with it as a child and so I just steer clear of it. Whenever I smell it, I gag. I was trying to keep an open mind at the grocery store yesterday though and decided to buy some fresh spinach and see if I liked it any better. Also its been years since I've had any canned spinach so I figured now was as good a time as any to see how I felt about it. I was surprised to actually like it. It doesnt gross me out like lettuce does and I even enjoyed the taste of it. I did try putting one in the frying pan while cooking the chicken but when i tasted it I instantly got flooded with all those terrible memories of how awful the canned stuff tasted. So I guess I just can't stand cooked spinach but fresh is A-okay!
I feel accomplished. :)
