To stay with the theme of easy and quick, here’s a sauteed spinach meal if you will.
Grab yourself a large skillet and with your kitchen scissors or sharp knife cut two strips of bacon into smaller pieces. On low heat, once the bacon’s oil has been released ad 2-3 cloves of chopped garlic. Stir a bit and then add about 1/5 of a red onion cut into small pieces. Again stir a bit, now add about a 1/4 of a chopped jalapeno. You can de-seed or not depending how hot you like it. Saute all together. Next I added a spinach and feta chicken sausage, that I also cut up into small pieces before adding to the pan. (you can buy them at many healthfood stores. The Aidelle brand is pretty good too, and they sell it at Costco) Stir all together.
Add in about three (3) or four handfuls of fresh spinach. Let it wilt a bit and then and sprinkle with some feta cheese. I’ve noticed that a lot of feta in the stores is NOT from sheep’s milk but from regular milk. I think there’s a big difference in flavor. Costco sells a Greek brand called Kolios that is tasty and affordable.
Not too much feta, perhaps 2 small tablespoons. Stir together well and enjoy. Give the feta a little time to melt..see the sauce it creates?
No condiments needed. Salt is plentiful from the bacon, sausage and feta and pepper is naturally in there from the jalapeno. Glass of red wine (Shiraz if you have it) rounds out your dinner really well.

Don’t take it all too seriously…don’t sweat it, enjoy your day, be nice, smile a lot and eat well 🙂
