My recipe of the day is for creamed spinach, which  I am posting as part of a Holiday Side Dishes event with  other bloggers I know. The event  runs three days this week:  Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I will be posting all three days. And each day will have a different recipe list to browse.

Hopefully you will find something  you like to serve for Turkey day or as part of another meal. Goodness knows, you  can have them besides just Thanksgiving.

In fact, my recipe for today is one that I often used to get when we went to the Boston Market for rotisserie chicken,so that is a good choice for a main  as well.

Of course, this recipe does not try to copy their recipe. I happen to think mine is better, but why would it not be with  its splash of white  wine and copious amounts of Boursin and  Parmesan cheese (not to  mention the cream)?

And yes,  with the  cream,  this is not  a diet dish as such by any means, but it is  great for the holidays. Serving six at a larger table is probably not such a bad idea.  While I love spinach there is always going to be someone who hates it (although I have no idea why).
