Roast chicken with olives and mushrooms, mashed cauliflower, and spinach

Chicken, Spinach, mashed cauliflowerI made what turned out to be a rather tasty meal tonight. Three dishes:

- Roast chicken with bacon and olives (and mushrooms)
- Mashed Cauliflower with Rosemary and Bacon
- Sauteed spinach with pine nuts and garlic
Chicken with olives and mushrooms

The first two dishes are from my new favorite recipe site, Martha's Envy (linked to above). The first two dishes were pretty much as listed in the recipes (I used pre-cut chicken and also added mushrooms since there is an anti-olive element in my house).

The spinach dish was:

- 1 bag of whole leaf spinach
- 8 cloves of chopped garlic
- handful of pine nuts
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste

Saute garlic in olive oil, add spinach in handfuls, making room in the pan as it wilts, season with salt and pepper, toss in pine nuts. remove from heat while spinach still slightly firm.

Chris actually hates olives, but he likes this chicken enough to just eat around them. Glad you enjoyed it!
