Sauteed Spinach

When I first met my husband he hated spinach. He refused to eat it, which is big, because he'll try anything. I grew up eating spinach almost every day, so it was hard for me to understand why he didn't like it. I finally convinced him to try my recipe, and while he doesn't love it like Addie and I do, he will eat it if it's on the menu. This is how I won him over to the spinach side:

Sauteed Spinach
1 12oz bag of fresh spinach
1 tsp butter
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tsp lemon juice
sprinkle of salt

Steam the spinach using a steamer basket (don't boil, all the nutrients will be washed away). Drain in a colander very well (I usually press it with fork to make sure that all of the water is squeezed out). In a small saute pan, melt the butter and add the garlic, lemon juice and salt. Chop the spinach and add to the pan. Saute for 1 minute and serve.
