1 pound spinach, washed

6 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoon salt

Cover beans with water and soak overnight. Pick over beans. Cook

Mad Cow Disease Waiting to Happen, April 1, 2004 - 09:27 AM
Reviewer: Anonymous from Sierra Vista, AZ
Eating beef at all is taking your life in your hands these days. But to use bones is really foolhardy. The nervous system runs near the bones, and that is where those nasty prions hang out. Boneless cuts of beef are the least dangerous (Mad Cow Disease-wise, if not heart attack-wise).
