Cream Style Corn with Baby Spinach

Rose Mary Mogan


My neighbor shared with me some fresh vegetables she had gotten from the Farmers Market and this spinach & corn was in the bag. Although I had never cooked spinach & corn together before, I knew they both were good for you, so I decided to give it a try.

It turned out both my husband & I enjoyed this quick & easy side dish immensely. I know I will be making it this way again real soon. Give it a try and see if you don't like it too.
