There are many recipes up my sleeves that are fast and simple and I might dedicate a week out of the month to those recipes. So keep on hating to cook and working your butts dog-tired so that you'd rather not prepare food! Blame it on Betty Crocker for making her pre-made meals so easy and then jacking up the price, so we can't afford to feed all the darn kids we have... not to mention all the extra crap she puts in there to kill us slowly!
This first time I tried a Beef Empanada was 6 years ago, when Chris brought some home from work. A woman he worked with made Authentic Puerto Rican beef emanadas for everyone in his department and he saved one for me...isn't he sweet?!
I took a bite and thought Dear Lord, this is a bit of heaven! It was delicious!! So please, if you do anything this week, give this one a chance. They're a bit labor intensive, but so worth it!
Think about making Emapandas as a family, it would be so much fun! I know some of you have children old enough to do the heavy duty cooking around the house!! I mean, Abby's four now and I often ask her "what you cookin' tonight kid?" She of course looks at me like I have three heads, but someday, someday she will be able to roll up her sleeves and make me some turkey pot pie!
Alright, off my soap box....
