don't forget to add a 1/4 to 1/2 of a Knorr's chicken cube to any of these to give it extra special flavor

Thanks but that's too salty and I don't want chicken flavor in my spinach.

Default creamed spinach

I have a quick creamed spinach recipe:

1 10oz pkg frozen chopped spinach - cooked per the box directions, drain and press all the liquid out.

In the same pan, empty a can of Campbell's Cream of Celery soup, with a splash of milk, or half and half to thin the soup. Season with salt and pepper, stir in the cooked spinach, and blend well, grate som fresh nutmeg in to the mixture and then grate some fresh parmesan cheese. check for seasoning, and serve.

I'll eat that if you make it for me. No one in my extended family makes or seems to eat creamed spinach. I've had it a few times and it wasn't good.
