Re: 7-15-13, Sherry's Yummy Strawberry Cake
What is size of container of fresh strawberries and also the frozen strawberries?
I used to make a recipe with 10 oz. of frozen strawberries and now I can only find
16 oz. containers. (You could eat the 6 oz. remaining!!) But wrong size can mess up the recipe.

For Martie wanting to know what to do with her can of spinach, drain it very well and use it in any recipe calling for frozen spinach. You might need more than one can, depending on how much spinach is called for in the recipe. I have also drained the spinach, reserving the water/juice, then used it to cook a generous cup of pasta. Cook the pasta, then drain. In large casserole dish misted with non -stick spray, stir pasta, spinach, and 1 cup or more of your favorite spaghetti or pizza sauce. Can add a small can of mushrooms that has been drained, if you like. Top with parmesan cheese or other cheese. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until mixture is hot. Can also heat in microwave or dump in a skillet and heat on stove.
