Microwave garlic spinach

Okay, here's my lunch for tomorrow:

Now, I also took a close up of the green things in the corner:

Now, on the left are obviously green grapes. On the right is something I discovered how to make in the microwave. It's, yep, garlic microwave spinach.

That probably sounds totally gross. But hear me out.

Take maybe 1 tsp of butter in a microwaveable bowl, and throw some minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Microwave for 25 seconds. Then, add a couple handfuls of spinach to the bowl, making sure to thoroughly coat the leaves in the melted butter, and microwave for another minute.

The result is amazing. It's almost like spinach chips, or something (but they're kind of greasy, so don't eat it with your hands). Foodies can kvetch all they like that I'm ruining perfectly good leafy green vegetables by putting them through the Paula Deen method, but still. Try it.
