I really was taken back that not alot of store offer a cream of Spinach soup option, so I sat down and started playing with different options took me about 8 different tries to get it to my perfect. My kids and husband love it and I have to make this 5 or 6 times throughout the fall winter months. I have tweaked the nutmeg content just because it give it a little fall feel to it but you can add as much as you like. I hope you all enjoy this I will be posting more cream soups soon.
