Side Suggestions: Sautéed Spinach
Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium heat. Add 1 package (12-16 ounce) of baby spinach, season with ¼ teaspoon salt, and stir until just wilted.
Side Suggestions: Simple Yukon Golds.
Scrub 2 medium Yukon gold potatoes, place in medium-sized pot and fill with water. Place pot on burner and cook on medium-high heat until the water begins to boil.
