Creamed Spinach

Randal actually made this for me while I was making the beer and cheddar risotto. I gave him the Pioneer Woman's recipe to follow, which he did along with a few of his own additions.

1 stick Butter
8 tbs Flour
1/2 an Onion, Finely Diced
1 garlic clove
1 1/2 cups Milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 pinch Nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
3 tbs Butter
24 ounces Spinach

In a medium pan, melt the 1 stick of butter, add the flour and stir together. Cook the butter and flour for 5 minutes, add the onion, garlic and allspice, cook for another few minutes. Pour in the milk and cream and heat for another 5 minutes.

In a seperate pan, melt the 3 tbsp of butter and add the spinach. Cook until wilted.

Season the cream sauce with salt, pepper and the nutmeg. Add spinach and serve.
