      This is from the food network

      Creamed Spinach
      Recipe courtesy Tyler Florence
      Extra-virgin olive oil
      1 tablespoon unsalted butter
      1 onion, minced
      2 garlic cloves, minced
      2 pounds fresh baby spinach, stemmed
      1/2 cup heavy cream
      1/2 teaspoon grated fresh nutmeg
      Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

      Heat a large pot over medium heat. Drizzle with a

      2-count of oil, add the butter, and stir it around so it melts. Saute the onion
      and garlic until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the spinach in batches, pushing it
      down with a wooden spoon to help it wilt. Keep adding more spinach when there is
      room in the pot. Cook the spinach until it is dry, then lower the heat and add the
      cream and nutmeg. Stir and cook for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and
      serve hot.

      Thought for the day: Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away!

            4 cups herb seasoned stuffing cubes
