Episode Summary

I Had My Super-special Friend Laurel From Trophy Boutique Come Over To Show Me How To Make Spanakopita, Thereby Showing Y'all How To Make It, Too. The Idea Is That Chicks Dig This Shit And We Ought To Know Because We Are Chicks. It Has Vegetables In It And It Requires Purchasing (and Knowing How To Use) Phyllo Dough Which Is Greek And Therefore Also Exotic (chicks Love Exotic Shit). Plus, As Laurel Ponts Out, If You Have Several Dates In One Week, You Can Make A Big Pan Of This And Reheat It In The Oven For Each Lady. Don't Be Too Obvious About It, Though. It Works Like A Charm And Then You Just Serve It On A Plate With Some Sliced Tomatoes And Basil With Salt. INGREDIENTS ½ C Olive Oil (not To Be Used All At Once) 2 C Onion, Minced ¼ Tsp Salt 1 Tsp Basil 1 Tsp Oregano 2½ Pounds Fresh Spinach, Cleaned And De-stemmed And Chopped Coarsely 5 Cloves Garlic, Minced 3 Tbsp Flour 1 Pound Feta Cheese, Crumbled 1 C Ricotta Or Cottage Cheese 1 Tbsp Black Pepper, Or To Taste 1 Pound Phyllo Pastry Leaves - Thawed! DIRECTIONS Turn Your Oven To 375 Now So It's Preheated Later. In A Big-ass Pot, Saute The Onion In 2 Tablespoons Of The Oil For About 5 Minutes Over Medium Heat, Just Until They Become Slightly Translucent. Add The Salt And Herbs. Stir It Around. Add The Spinach And Garlic And Stir That Around. You Will Have To Add The Spinach A Few Handfuls At A Time To Make It All Fit. Add Some, Stir It Around Until It Wilts, Then Add More. When All The Spinach Is In There And Wilted, Sprinkle The Flour Over, Stir Well, And Reduce The Heat To Low. The Flour Will Absorb The Spinach Liquid And Make The Filling More Firmer. While The Spinach Simmers, Begin Layering The Phyllo Sheets In The Baking Pan. Brush A Little Of The Remaining ½ Cup Of Oil On The Bottom Of The Pan. Lay In A Sheet Of Phyllo And Brush Some Oil On It, Too. Layer About 10 More Sheets With Oil On Each. By Now The Spinach Should Be Looking Good And Thick. Add All The Cheese And Black Pepper.moreless
