Garden Girls

I made spinach mushroom enchiladas for dinner last night.  We’ve had spinach-something every night this week.  I decided to make an effort since Boy complains about how I ignore his produce.  I can’t help it.  I saw a cartoon today that said, “I don’t mess with lettuce.  It’s a waste of my time.”  Amen.  At least I have little maidens to pick it for me.
