Budget Boursin and Creamed Spinach

This recipe will save you a bunch of $$$. A small round of Boursin cheese costs $6 in Atlanta. You can make it for about $2 yourself just by mixing the ingredients together. Easy Peasy. The incredible Creamed Spinach is made in the microwave. I'm taking this side dish to my sister's house for Thanksgiving. Should I really be sharing how inexpensive and easy it is to make? lol  Have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
