I hope you all had a great weekend! My daughter and my son's girlfriend came downtown to our loft for a ladies night with me and my girlfriend, and they stayed the night in my living room. So we had a fun evening. I made a bunch of different Empanadas so this week is Empanada week. If you do not know what an Empanada is, it is a stuffed bread or pastry baked or fried in many countries in South Europe, Latin America, and parts of Southeast Asia. The name means to wrap or coat in bread.
