HoPe Club- All Emotionally Damaged Spinach Egg Pies Allowed

There is a location in the Multiverse that not many know of… in fact, it could even be considered a secret. A secret between the wind and the trees, and the grass poking through the cracked pavement of a forgotten lot. A secret between the vines of ivy and the brick walls they grow upon, and the cracked roof of a building abandoned to nature.

This is the headquarters of the HoPe Club, an unassuming place of little significance to many, but of unimaginable importance to the few. Those who have been lost or forgotten, those who have been beaten and abused, those who have been dealt a terrible hand by the deck of life; all gather here for purposes known only to themselves. Whether it be for the comfort of others whom understand, or for the convenience of having allies at their back, the outcast kids and teens everywhere try to reach this place… to escape the hardship set upon us for just a day or two.

Anyone interested in joining us here, leave your names on this paper and let it be carried away wherever it goes. Even if it’s destroyed before your very eyes, don’t give up HoPe. We will find you, and show you how to get here, and from then on you’ll be free to hang out with us any time you need.

So my Mom really loves octopus, and she wanted me to make an app for her dinner party, so I came up with these Octopus and Spinach Phyllo Pies.

  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • ¾ lbs. of Octopus Canned in Olive Oil
  • 1 lbs. of spinach
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tbs pine nuts, toasted
  • ½ can of Coconut Milk
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Melted Butter
  • Thawed Phyllo Dough
  1. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat, when hot add garlic and sautee for 2 minutes.
  2. Drain the octopus and add to the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Sautee for 5 minutes
  3. Add the spinach in handfuls, allowing it to wilt and shrink
  4. Add the ½ can of Coconut Milk (more if you want it extra creamy) and reduce over medium heat until thickened, about 10 minutes. It will thicken a bit more as it cools
  5. Preheat oven to 375 F
  6. Stir in toasted pine nuts and set aside to cool.
  7. Using a sharp knife, cut the Phyllo dough into 5"x5" squares
  8. Butter the wells of a normal sized muffin/cupcake tin. Place one sheet of Phyllo into the tin, folding it to the sides of the cup so that there is an inch or two of overhang. Brush butter on top of that layer. Repeat with two more layers.
  9. Spoon 2-3 tbs of the Octopus-Spinach mixture into the Phyllo cups. Fold over the edges of the Phyllo to close the pie. Brush the top with more butter.
  10. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the Phyllo is golden brown and crispy.
