I made something similar to these for a Greek-themed party once: Tyropitakia - Cheese Pie Triangles Recipe - Greek Food

I used spinach and feta, like in spanakopita. Turned out great You can make a bunch and freeze some, then thaw and bake. Keep the sheets you're not working with under a damp kitchen towel, so they don't dry out.

I bought some sriracha sauce a while back - I want to get more comfortable making Thai curries. And I went to a Chinese grocery store Saturday and got a can of lychees, among some other things. And an International Grocery Store, connected to a Caribbean restaurant, where I got some tamarind (for the Thai) and a couple eddo, aka taro. They said to use it like a potato.
