Empanada time!

Want to know what I woke up thinking about this morning?

Empanadas and the possibility to make them today. 

So, I headed out to the store and picked up some ground beef and the "discos" (which means the little pastry circles) and got to work when I came home.  I've started since noon today on browning the beef and making my homemade hot sauce that goes very well with the empanadas.  Right now, it's 3:18 pm and I have about three more batches  (4 at a time in my deep fryer) to go!  Hot sauce is already made.  Hubby is actually feasting on the first batch that came out of the deep fryer. 

My apartment may smell like deep fried empanadas for the rest of the day today, but it's well worth it when I can stuff my face with them!

Then in a couple of hours I'm going to make an apple crisp to end off our night with a delish dessert!  Can't wait.

Happy Sunday.
