In the1960s there was an animated TV series that my brother and I watched. The leading role was Popeye the sailorman, who ate spinach from a can. My brother was very impressed with Popeye. He begged our mother to buy him spinach. When she brought home a can, he was excited. However, he found the smell so offensive he never ate spinach again. Some years later, I became vegetarian and often ate raw spinach in salads. Besides steaming or stir-frying, I wasn’t sure how to cook it. I love potatoes and when I tasted my first vegetable pie with a potato crust, I knew that spinach and potatoes would be a great combination. This is a dish that Popeye would enjoy. My brother, on the other hand, would like the potatoes.

Fave Memory (of my husband and in-laws).
Seriously, I love my mother-in-law. She raised five kids as a single mom while working full time. However, seriously, who believes that their kids LOVE soggy cooked spinach and eggs, dotted with bits of cheese? OK, I would love the cheese and today I would eat the spinach, but not as a child!
