LOL.... as you prob see, I didn't read the whole thread before I mentioned the way I make dip.

I didn't know about cooking spinach to get it "healthier" as Phil said.

I want to check out the info on this to be clear on it all. As you know, we use spinach and all the green leafy lettuce types in salads all the time. I eat it RAW.

hmmmmmmmmmm ... I DID NOT KNOW THIS !!!!!!

Read this about spinach

Spinach - The Supreme Super Food

Popeye had the right idea when he placed spinach at the top of the lfood list. Although you won't
experience the instant results that Popeye did, the health benefits associated with eating raw and
cooked spinach are real and should not be under-estimated. While raw spinach is an extremely
popular leafy substance in many salads, experts suggest eating spinach cooked whenever
possible, as. cooking makes the nutrients and anti-oxidant carotenoids found in spinach easier f to
absorb

Well whatever. I'm still eating it raw in my salads!! We have some frozen spinach in the freezer and I'm going to heat it up for dinner tonight. Add some "Mrs. Dash" type of herbs instead of salt. YUM!!!

Thanks Phil, Donna and Myrna.

Hi Donna,

I have a spinach dip that you might like to try. It is easy and quick to make.

Whilst on the subject of snack type food I also have a recipe for meatballs that my family always ask me to make for our get-togethers.

SPINACH DIP – June Ridgley

3 Shallots, chopped

½ to 1 cup Mayonnaise

1 pkt of frozen Spinach, thawed

1 pkt Spring Vegetable Soup

1 carton Sour Cream

1 small tin of Water Chestnuts, chopped small

Thaw spinach overnight then squeeze out all the water.

Place spinach in a bowl, add all the other ingredients and mix well

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NUTTY, MINCY MAGIC MEATBALLS

(Just watch them disappear!)

1 lb beef mince

2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter

1 small onion, chopped

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp soy sauce

Salt & pepper

1 tsp curry powder

1 egg to bind

2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce

Small amount of flour if needed

Combine all ingredients for meatballs, mix well.

Roll into small balls, toss lightly in plain flour

In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add meatballs, cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until no longer pink inside, turning frequently for even cooking.

(Magic trick: Add some chopped coriander, carrot and fish sauce for that extra Thai flavour. )

Dipping sauce:

1tbsp white vinegar

2tbsp sweet chilli sauce

1tbsp honey

Combine dipping sauce ingredients, mix well and set aside.

Yum, Phil. That does sound quite tasty. Thank you for the information about spinach. In my area of northcentral Indiana I can get canned spinach, frozen spinach in a box, or the large leaves pre-packaged in the produce section. The frozen spinach never seems that good. When eating plain spinach, I like the canned spinach heated up, then sprinkled with a little vinegar.
