"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Directions:
First cook the spinach by either steaming for 4 minutes or quickly sautÚ it in a little olive oil in a deep skillet, stir-fried on medium-high heat until limp (but still bright green). Or if you prefer you can microwave it: Place it in a large, microwave-safe bowl (if leaves are dry, sprinkle with a tiny bit of water); cover with plastic wrap (leaving a small portion on one side open a smidgen); microwave on high power until just barely limp. Line a plate with a paper towel and place cooked spinach on towel. Pat dry the spinach to remove excess liquid. Chop into smaller pieces if desired.
On a baking pan, roll out the crescent rolls and divide into 8 squares. Fill the center of each with a small amount of spinach, feta, onion and remaining desired ingredients. Fold the roll onto itself to make pockets and crimp the edges together so the ingredients don't fall out. Place the 8 pockets in the oven and bake at 375║ for 11 to 13 minutes or until the crescents are done.
