Original post from 2015
I have been thinking about making this for quite some time. I loved the idea of mixing creamed spinach and creamy macaroni and cheese.
So, when my husband said he wanted to grill some steaks I decided this was the perfect opportunity to give it a try. I mean if steak houses are famous for serving creamed spinach with their prime rib, wouldn’t this be a great down home spin on that idea? Yes! Yes, it is!
Somehow I failed to get a picture of my husband’s steak. He got himself a 23 oz T bone.
Because who doesn’t need 23 oz of beef for dinner? He asked if I wanted one too, but I knew I had to live through the evening so I asked him to get me something a little more reasonable.
Little Dude loved the macaroni and cheese. Cheese and pasta are two things I can usually count on him eating, so it is a convenient cover to get him to try some green vegetables as well.
Hopefully that trick will work for your family as well!
