Thursday Lunch

Yesterday my son went for excursion at a local hydroponic farm and came home with 2 packs of spinach complimentary from the farm :D So kind of him when he mentioned to give a pack to his grandma, but I explained to him these greens cannot be kept too long as we only visit my inlaws over the weekends :D

As these spinach is not as tender as those baby spinach, so I thought of making it a more soupy dish instead of just stir frying with garlic.
