  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour, and cook until the mixture turns a darker yellow color, about 5 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms, and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Whisk in the sherry, chicken broth, and milk, then add the spinach, green onion, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat, whisking constantly, then reduce heat to medium low, and simmer until the spinach is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Garnish with shrimp to serve.

Very good and very easy. Make sure you chop up the spinach. I got lazy and didn't. You know you can't get a whole cooked leaf of spinach on a teaspoon? My wife made me wear a lobster bib.

Not quite what I was expecting from the other reviews, but it was still quite good, and my boy really enjoyed it.
