Popeye's favorite - Spinach Feta Soup

A while back we were in Watkins Glen and I had the most fabulous spinach feta soup there. I was determined to re-create that wonderful dish when we returned home. In my quest I came up with the following recipe for it and it tastes wonderful. My daughter wants the recipe too so it must be good cause she's a picky eater!
Spinach Feta Soup
750g bag of frozen spinach
200g feta drained
5 slices of bacon
4 stalks of celery
1 small onion
Knob of butter
900 ml chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup cream cheese
2 large potatoes
Garlic clove minced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp Pepper
2 tsp Worchester sauce
1 tsp nutmeg

Cut up raw bacon finely and brown bacon in a stock pot, add garlic diced celery and diced onion and saute all with a knob of butter. Peel and dice two large potatoes and add to the mix. Saute 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Turn down heat and simmer until potatoes are tender. Cook the spinach and drain well. Chop into small pieces. Add the spinach, nutmeg and Worchester and continue to simmer while stirring well. Add the feta cheese and cream cheese and stir until melted. Add the cream, stir well and simmer for 5 minutes…..eat and enjoy!
