Day 113- Creamed Spinach

011I eat spinach at least 4 times a week and I always cook it the same way. Steamed with some butter and salt. Tonight I switched it up by doing creamed spinach on the grill.

I’d never made it before, but couldn’t imagine it being too hard. I wish I had grabbed a steak at Whole Foods instead of chicken; creamed spinach and steak sounds must nicer. Oh well.

I preheated the oven to 400 and started the coals and guess what…it started raining.


With it coming down so hard I had to use lighter fluid, which greatly effects the food’s taste.

I already had my chicken in the oven when I realized the coals weren’t getting hot. More lighter fluid! I turned the oven down to 350.

I checked on the coals again. It was raining even harder.


009I check again, and got some coals going; about three.

I placed the cast iron skillet over the hot coals to protect them. I also used the skillet to make the creamed spinach.

008With the chicken almost done and the coals roaring, I melted butter on the cast iron skillet and then added shallots and garlic. Next I added the spinach I cooked inside. After I few minutes I added the cream and let it reduce.

I threw some red onion and red pepper in with my chicken. When the rain has stopped and I was done grilling, it was time to cuddle on the couch with Bobby and watch a little Frasier!

010Have a great night!
