Spinach + Prom

Hey Everyone!

I hope you are having a fabulous weekend. I enjoyed all of your lovely suggestions on how to use up all the spinach. Popeye was onto something; spinach can be great! A few of my favorite uses…

Warm Strawberry Bacon Orzo Salad served up with a yummy turkey burger.

If you don’t think you like spinach, try it with bacon. You might just change your mind :)

Dark mixed green + extra spinach + strawberries + baby yellow tomatoes + red onion + goat cheese + chicken. Super simple yet extremely tasty. A light drizzle of balsamic + olive oil + seasonings was added post photo op.

Other ways I enjoyed eating spinach: Green smoothies, with hot pasta, sautéed. I really can’t remember all the ways I used it!

Onto more important matters (spinach isn’t the most important thing in life? what?). Prom was last night.

I have a general policy of avoiding school dances. I haven’t been to one since homecoming freshmen year (I’m a Junior now). I’m really not sure; they just aren’t really my thing. I considered skipping out on prom. But, did I really want to sit at home alone while all my friends were at prom? Or watch all my friends upload pictures onto Facebook and not be tagged in any of them? Umm, heck no! I didn’t want to miss out on the festivities!

And you know what I realized? If you’re being crazy and having a good time, no one even notices your dancing skills…or lack thereof :)

Have you every been to prom? Do you like dances?
