Creamed Spinach (Onions)

IT"S RAINING!!! LOTS OF RAIN! We have had over 2 inches today and it is still coming!!

So to celebrate the rain I made a pretty delicious supper!

Sauteed onions and garlic creamed spinach with garden fresh potatoes and steak.

Tonight is the first time I have ever made creamed spinach.  Thanks to my cousin Jennifer I have a fabulous cookbook with tons (742 pages) of vegetable recipes "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone" by Deborah Madison.   It's awesome!!

Anyway here is the recipe

1/2 cup cream
1 garlic clove
1 large bunch of spinach stems removed
2 t butter
salt and fresh milled pepper
grated nutmeg


Heat the cream with the garlic until fine bubbles form on the surface, then turn off the heat and set aside.  Cook the spinach over med high heat for about 5 minutes.  The rinse and squeeze out the excess water and finely chop.  Melt the butter in a skillet, add the spinach, and cook until the pan is dry.  Pour the cream over the spinach and simmer until it thickens slightly.  Taste for salt and season with pepper and nutmeg.

I love cheese so I added some grated Parmigiano Reggiano to the cream before I poured it over the spinach.  I also added chopped pieces of cooked bacon to the spinach.  I figure both those things make everything delicious!
