Tonight I was craving empanadas. I ordered delivery from a place I've never tried before that was offering a promotion of $23.90/dozen (with an exchange rate of U$S 3.80/peso, that works out to about $6.30 USD).
OK, like I can eat that many, gross. But the price was right.
The delivery guy showed up on his little motorbike, face wrapped in a scarf under his helmet. It's winter, as I keep reminding you. Go ahead and gloat in your summertime bliss.
Anyway, I ordered nine different kinds (they offer more than twice that many varieties), and I was wondering how I would tell them apart. Some places make them in different shapes. But this place had the cleverest idea of all: Brand them.
This one is "QA" queso and albahaca (cheese and basil).
This one I just had to try --
"PC" for panceta and ciruela (bacon and PRUNE with cheese). Although the "bacon" was more "ham." Still, an interesting taste combination.
I was to-tally a fat, lazy pig and ate these on the couch. Poor little animals were going nuts.
To my right.
And to my left.
