What's For Dinner Tonight: Mushroom, Spinach & Hot Dog Toasts

Some people believe things happen for a reason. I'm not one of those people. Occasionally, though, I can see how something positive can come out of a negative situation.

One such thing happened over two years ago when I broke my arm and started using Washington's Green Grocer to get fresh produce delivered to my door. My arm has long since healed {knock on wood}, but I've remained a loyal customer of Washington's Green Grocer. It's convenient, delicious, and the customer service is superb.

The photo above shows some of the items I received on Wednesday. One of those tomatoes is already gone.

Last night for dinner I used one of the portobella mushrooms and a few slices of bread from this week's box with spinach I had left from last week's box to make a simple and satisfying dinner.

Mushroom, Spinach & Hot Dog Toasts
Makes 2

drizzle olive oil
1 portobella mushroom, sliced
1 bunch spinach, sliced
2 garlic cloves, sliced
salt & pepper to taste
2 hot dogs, sliced
red pepper flakes
2 slices of toast
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet, add mushrooms and saute for about 5 minutes.
2. Add spinach, garlic cloves, salt & pepper {to taste} and hot dogs and continue to saute until spinach wilts and the hot dogs are cooked through. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
3. Toast the bread.
4. Top each piece of bread with mushroom/spinach/hot dog mixture, sprinkle with cheese and broil for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.

I took this photo at 7pm last night, so don't judge ;) This was a really great meal!
