Creamed Spinach

Bag of washed spinach

1/4 Cup of Cream

Salt and Pepper

Hubby Dennis loves spinach.  The man is not a vegetable lover.  It was less than a month or so ago, I actually caught him hiding green peas under his mashed potatoes on his plate.  He was swirling his potatoes and I asked him, “What are you doing?”  I took my fork and lifted and there they were. His peas, hidden under the potatoes.  I chuckled and whispered in his ear, “You’re over 40, you don’t have to eat peas if you don’t like them.”  He said he didn’t want to hurt my feelings by not eating them.

My feelings are not hurt.  For goodness sake, do not eat what you do not like! 

I happen to love both peas and spinach, but Dennis loves creamed spinach.

If you have ever made spinach, you know that the big bunch of spinach will reduce down to a small amount, so use the whole bag of spinach.  Saute in olive oil for 3-5 minutes, add 1/4 cup cream, salt and pepper and serve immediately.
