This is my favorite part about the holidays.

All the dishes with the word “cream” is thrown around like no other.

Creamy mashed potatoes.

Creamy mashed sweet potatoes.

Creamy mushrooms.

Creamed corn.

And of course.

Creamed spinach.

So let’s just put our calorie count on the side for a few days.

And enjoy all that is “cream”.

Right?

But hey, this is a spinach-based dish.

So at least we’re getting our serving of veggies this holiday season.
