Well kids…as For Foods Sake is totally sold out and not appearing on shelves near you any time soon, I thought I would put out this teaser to keep you keen…Late August is the official date for its arrival, so stay salivating until then will you?? This is just a little side dish, delish and easy. You can really load up as much spinach into it as you can manage to fit in and wilt down, because wilt down it does. Enjoy…and don’t say I never give you anything…really!
