I hope everyone tried the spinach.  I tried it again using Laughing Cow light garlic and herb cheese.  The taste was comparable the cheese is cheaper but harder to work with.
Cold weather makes me think of comfort food and that makes me think of roast and potatoes and Marian (my mom).

roast, potatoes, mixed veggies and corn bread

chuck roast
potatoes (1 per/person)
carrots (6)
celery (4)

Rub roast with flour, salt and pepper.  Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil and brown both sides of roast.  Dissolve 3 beef bouillon cubes in 2 cups water add to pan.  Add 1 tsp. onion powder, 1 tsp. garlic powder and sliced onion cover and cook for 2 hours, turning halfway.  Keep checking juice levels and don't let it boil dry.  Add cleaned and cut celery and carrots to pan, keep covered and keep cooking on low to med. heat.  You can add potato wedges here or boil and make mashed your call.  I like mashed using a lot of butter, a little sour cream, milk, salt and pepper.  When done (4 hours or so) remove from pan and make gravy.  Dissolve 2 tbsp. corn starch into 1/2 cup water and add to pan. Bring to boil and stir like mad. Add water or water/starch mixture to desired consistency.
