Spinach and Egg: A Ten-Minute Dinner

March 30, 2008

A night alone is the perfect time to make one of my favorite meals – creamed spinach and fried eggs. This is not a dinner I would make for my family, because they don’t like spinach. I find that hard to understand.

I first had this combination as a child. My mother would take me shopping and we would have lunch in the big department store restaurant. This combination was always on the menu and our favorite treat. It was served with two fried eggs over creamed spinach and toast points on the side. Since it isn’t on menus anymore I make it as a treat that reminds me of special times with my mother.

I take creamed spinach out of my freezer and put it in the microwave. My favorite brand is Seabrook Farms. It comes in two sizes. The smaller 9 oz. is perfect for one and the 16 oz. package is good for two servings. Then I fry two eggs with olive oil and a small amount of butter. I love it when the white is well-browned so I cook them well on one side. If you want to cook the top of the eggs, turn the fire off and turn them over they will cook just enough while keeping the center runny. Five minutes later I’m setting the table. Instead of toast points I get out my package of Eli Zabar’s bread crisps. They are quick and delicious.

Et voila, dinner is ready! In less than ten minutes I sit down to a delicious meal and almost no clean-up. Now who can argue with that?

There is something perfect about cracking a hard-boiled egg and sliding your fingers under the shell so it pops away from the white in a few big pieces and you are left with this beautiful glistening egg. You particularly know how satisfying that experience is when you expect it but don’t have it. Here is how...

Sitting at the dinner table and lingering after a delicious meal has always been my favorite part of a party. I love when the table, still cluttered with plates, silver, bottles, and glasses half-full, all shimmering in the candle light. Everyone dawdling, their voices excited while eruptions . . .

So far, 2022 has shaken me to my core. It has left me questioning things I believed to be true—things I took for granted. Number 1 I NEVER thought Roe v. Wade would be overturned. That is my stupidity; the signs were obvious but I just didn’t believe it could/would happen. Number 2 I NEVER thought . . .
