"On the subject of spinach: divide into little piles. Rearrange again into new piles. After five of six maneuvers, sit back and say you are full." -Delia Ephron

The refrigerator light goes on...

Roasted garlic is good for almost anything, and with just a bit of honey and nutmeg, simple sauteed spinach becomes a rich complement to any meal. I tasted a spinach dish like this one at Carrollton Market, a local bistro and one of my favorite restaurants here in New Orleans. Its (fantastic) Chef is Jason Goodenough.
