Spinach, Bacon & Mushroom Salad

The evening before our oldest son was born, I made a big bowl of this--a friend had told me that spinach was full of Vitamin K, which was supposed to help with nosebleeds (which I'd been having). Even though my water had already broke, I went ahead and ate supper--figuring a first baby would take its time showing up. And I was right---it was almost exactly 24 hours later before he was born. The following year, we had this for his birthday dinner (along with Spaghetti Alla Carbonara--which was "leftovers" for supper the night before he was born). That started a family tradition, so when each of our children was born, we made a note of our dinner menu--so their birthday dinners are very special!
