My fiance sent me a text this morning saying that a co-worker of his brought in home made empanadas. He also vouched that they were better than the empanadas from my favorite place in Hells Kitchen. Knowing how much I love empanadas, Dave offered to pay her to make a large batch for us It is the one thing that I just don't have the patience to make & have just never mastered making, but I SOOOOOO love to eat. That text made my day today, knowing that Friday I will have empanadas. Does anyone else have a food item like this. Something that makes you excited before you even have it?
