My farmers market closed months ago and it won't reopen until the end of April. What's a vegetable-loving girl to do? There are plenty of fruits and vegetables in the grocery store, but they're not always at the peak of freshness. This time of year, I often opt for frozen vegetables which, although they sometimes lack the virtues of the summer-fresh stuff, carry other benefits, like convenience.
Let's talk about those vegetables and other goodies that get squirreled away in the freezer. It's time to pull them out and put them to good use. Let's start with spinach, shall we?
