It used to be that I felt accomplished when I finished a triathlon or received an award at work.
Nowadays, if I'm able to exercise, shower and cook dinner in the same day, I feel like superwoman.
...As the commercial goes, having a baby changes everything.
I felt like I had accomplished something (albeit a little victory) the other night when I needed to use up 3/4 of a can of artichokes and a bit of spinach. Oh, and some potatoes that were starting to sprout. My tape-worm of a stomach called at me to make spinach-artichoke mashed potatoes, and so I did.
It was quite delicious.
I simply made the beginning of a spinach-artichoke dip and added it to mashed potatoes, checked the seasonings and added some dairy goodness. I really think it could be delicious without the dairy too. The spinach and artichoke add a great heartiness to the potatoes (and a nice kick of color).
