I've tried several recipes for creamed spinach in the past, but this version that I tossed together is the first one to live up to my expectations. It's quick and easy, and I think it could be easily jazzed up with some hot sauce, more sour cream or some Cajun spices to make a nice warm spinach dip.

I made one purchase yesterday. I found a $1.00 coupon on Sunday's paper for Cuties Clementines and they were still on sale from last Wednesday's grocery ad, so I picked up another 5-pound box of them.
