Apropos first post: a home-cooked dinner that consists of squid. This is where a meal fits all my needs: it has health aspects (spinach) and it incorporates creatures of the sea.
I purchased the “squid in a bag” (photo above) from the Dekalb Farmer’s Market in Decatur Georgia hoping to create a decent weeknight meal that would quench my desire to eat at a restaurant. Cooking these suckers was not very hard or time-consuming (and I am VERY lazy when I get home from work) so that’s saying something.
Step 1: Wash the slippery suckers
Step 2: Cut ’em up
Step 3: Gotta add some garlic for flava
-at the same time take a bag of washed spinach (bought it in a bag) and throw it into a pot with the heat turned up to get rid of some of that spinach volume.
Step 4: Garlic in the pan heating in some olive oil, and get those squiddies in there too
Step 5: Take a jar of tomato sauce (your choice) and throw it into a pot – this will be where your meal will end up.
Step 5 & 6 go together: Toss some seasoning (used Old Bay) onto the spinach and lemon juice on the squid
After it cooks for a few minutes move the squid and spinach into the red sauce, cook a couple more minutes and voila:
