Because today is a holiday in Guatemala (read the aside below), we are going to skip all the controversial stuff and just have Empanadas de leche as dessert, postre in Spanish. It was a little over year ago that Lucía requested “photos of some ‘empanadas de leche’ (las que tienen manjar adentro), pleaseeeeyyyy?”
See, sometimes I take a little while to get to your requests, but I always fulfill your petitions. My to-do list of photos and information to publish in AntiguaDailyPhoto is quite long, but I eventually get stuff off the list like today.
Perhaps, some of you will be kind enough to provide a recipe for Empanadas de leche; how about it Erin and other cooking lovers out there?. Also, we should ask Amanda from AntiguaFC.com to carry empanadas on her wonderful site of flavors and colors of Guatemala; I mean, why not she’s already carrying all kinds of Guatemalan pastries and bread. Today, I even noticed she has pepitoria (ground roasted squash seeds); no more excuses not have mango and other fruits with pepitoria. You should ask Amanda for chile cobanero en polvo too!
Día de la Revolución Holiday Aside:
Today, October 20, is observed as Día de la Revolución (Revolution’s Day) and everybody gets the day off. Well, almost everybody, I will be working.
