Careful With Those Veggies!

Last night for dinner I fixed lemon chicken and rice, served over a bed of fresh spinach. It's one of our family's favorites. This morning I logged on to MSNBC and their top story was about a serious outbreak of e. coli that has been traced to fresh, bagged spinach. Doh! That's what I used for dinner!

Man, it's always those shortcuts that come back to bite you. Pre-trimmed, pre-washed, ready-to-eat... well, except maybe that nasty bit of bacteria. Make sure to wash your veggies folks, even if they've already been "triple-washed" for your convenience.

OT: Sorry for the lack of posts recently. With this week's primary election in Maryland, most of my attention has been focused on my politics blog. Now that the election is past, I will endeavor to be a bit more balanced in my blogging.
