Feisty Bento #385: Spinach


Today's lunch!  You may find it gross.  Sorry.  I like cheese.  A LOT.

Top: slices of local/organic tomatoes from my CSA; stuffed zucchini (recipe to come on Feisty Foodie) (zucchini also from CSA!); more sliced tomato and a grape tomato - also from my CSA!  Yum, deliciously sweet!
Bottom: quick creamed spinach I whipped up in about 5-10 minutes after class last night, lol


Different angle, so you can see the stuffed zucchini better. 


You might wonder what's with the ginormous amount of spinach... well!  I bought 40 ounces from Fairway on Sunday for $1.99!!!  I'm trying to use up a lot of it before it goes bad, so it's been spinach non-stop.  I was going to stuff some manicotti with a spinach+cheese mixture, but I didn't have much time so instead I just made a sort of creamed spinach.  I haven't decided yet if I'll post the recipe, as I'm not entirely in love with what I've made so far (twice).  A few tweaks with the rest of the spinach and I should have a workable recipe for y'all, if you're interested! 

Think outside the lunchbox!!!


  1. Oh wow I LURVE creamed spinach! Haven't had any for aaaaages and now I am desperatly craving some. In fact, my craving for creamed spinach is outweighing the craving I have for fresh homemade brownies (which are currently baking in the oven)

    I'm totally interested in a tweaked recipe when one is forthcoming! I quite like my version but would love to give yours a go :)

  2. mmmm. spinach. I could eat it any/all ways any day. love spinach.

    Grab some wonton wrappers and ricotta cheese and you will have some AWESOME spinach/ricotta ravioli.

    OH, now I am really hungry.

    I hate reading your blog ;P

  3. And I am getting really tired of having to click FOUR times to post one lousy comment.

    What is up with that? lol

  4. I think it looks GREAT!!! I once had someone look at one of my bento pics and say "EWWWW that looks GROSS"... I still have not forgiven her!


  5. Mmm... Creamed spinach! My boys don't like it so I haven't made it in ages, and now I'm craving it!
