For some reason, I always thought I didn't like Empanadas. I think it's because when I've had them, I didn't get to pick what was in them and it usually involved something I didn't like. Well, after today's playdate, I realized I have horribly misjudged empanadas. Because of my oral surgery, I wasn't able to try them out today, but after seeing that it's just deep fried goodness, I will return to Marini's Empanada House.
The kids got to make two each - a savory one and a sweet one.
Jackson chose apples for his sweet one.
Here he is mashing the edges down for his fork.
And for his savory one, he chose a cheese, ham, marinara mix.
Although he doesn't look thrilled in this picture, he loved them! Of course, he never gets deep fried dough, so figured he better eat them as quickly as possible before we changed our mind and took them back.
