Sautéed Spinach with Garlic

I went grocery shopping tonight. While I was gone, Steve fed Liam and Annika raw spinach, in addition to their other dinner fare. Liam ate his spinach; Annika wasn't so enthused. Anyway, Steve typically waits to eat his dinner until I get home; he likes it when we can eat together (very sweet). So when I got home, he had a spinach recipe and the needed components all prepared. Here's what he did:
Olive oil
Fresh-pressed garlic (couple cloves)
Coarse salt
Dill or another herb (optional)

Remove and compost the large, tough spinach stems. Put some olive oil in a skillet, and add the garlic while the skillet is still cold. Cook over medium heat until garlic is slightly brown. Add spinach and stir to coat with olive oil. Cook for about 1 minute, just until spinach is wilted. Remove spinach from hot pan immediately. Add salt to taste, and sprinkle with dill or another herb if you like (I forgot).

This was simple and tasty.
