Seriously, Bina, you just posted somewhere else on the wideworld internet:wink2: that you used spinach to lower your INR. Or was that broccoli? :confused2:
I'm just trying to be helpful . . . :angel:

Well, it's in the oven but I haven't put the eggs, bread crumbs or cheese in yet.
I'm EXHAUSTED from dealing with the two pounds of spinach . . . . that's a lot of spinach! :eek2:Two pounds of Swiss chard and two pounds of zucchini ain't nothing to sneeze at either.:biggrin2:

Now that I've made it and tried it . . . it's a good dish, but I have a spinach casserole that I like much better. I'll post it in a day or so. As Laurie mentions, this recipe contains a huge amount of green vegetables, but it cooked down to a manageable 9 x 13 baking dish size. Next time I make it, I'm going to add an extra egg and more cheese.:smile2:

Yes mary, my normal week of dinners includes 3-4 nights with a small portion of broc and small salads in between. The back to back broccoli and spinach lunch was a bonus to try to nudge down my INR of 3.7 (which doesn't worry me anyway).
So how much is 2 pounds of spinach in volume.... 4 quarts?

Dunno about the 4 quarts. I bought 3 packages, 10 ounces each, and was still 2 ounces short.

I can tell you that it was a heck of a lot of spinach!

Probably enough to qualify as a Popeye snack.:wink2:

Does anyone have a 'Green Bean Casserole' or 'Sweet Potatoe' dish they want to share? I have prepared my own two versions of these two recipes but I'm always looking for different variations and as simple as possible! :)

My girls say her first ingredient is always a cube of butter!! I have had some success with adapting her recipes. Many of them use much more salt and fat than necessary.
