    Asked the Hubs to stop on the way home for Arugula and he got spinach by mistake. Hummm. Oh well why not I removed the stems and wilted it slightly in a pan with a little bacon grease and a pinch of garlic powder. All else remained the same. This was without a doubt a happy 'mistake' we will be having again.
