 BATTER: Blend all the ingredients in a blender or by hand. Let rest 2
 hours. Brush crepe pan with oil. Heat pan, but don't let it get too hot.
 Place 1/2 a ladle of batter in pan and turn pan to form a coating. Batter
 will stick to the pan.
 
 Turn down heat, cook a few minutes, then using the blunt side of a knife
 loosen the edges of the crepe. Lift the rest with your fingers and flip
 over to cook on the other side just one minute. Do the same with the rest
 of the batter. Or buy ready made crepes shells.
 
 FILLING: Cut off dark green parts of leek. Cut it in half and wash very
 well under cold running water.Slice it as thin as possible,julienne. Melt
 the butter in a pan, cook chopped onion and add leek and mushrooms.Season
 with salt and pepper.Cook until all liquid has evaporated. Stir in flour
 cook a few seconds and stir in milk until it thickens.Add cream. Add
 spinach and nutmeg and just bring it to a boil. Turn off heat.
 
 SAUCE: Prepare leek as for filling. Melt butter add leek cook until wilted.
 Season with salt and pepper Stir in flour cook a few seconds. Add milk
 stirring until it boils. Stir in cream and nutmeg. Set aside.
 
 Place a heaping T of filling in the center of each crepe. Fold edges on top
 like an envelope. Arrange crepes packages, seam side down into a buttered
 baking dish. Bake in a 350 degrees oven for 20 minutes. Reheat sauce and
 spoon over baked crepes.
