Patagonia is a sparsely populated region on the southern tip of South America, shared by Argentina and Chile. The 260,000-square-mile region is so barely settled that population density is as low as 1 person per square mile in some areas.
Please take a second or eight seconds, 🙂 (there are 8 pics) to look at gorgeous Patagonia. In some remote areas we just know we could read a lot of books and get a lot of writing done! The sky-OH! And the little twinkling village pic-WoW!
When we saw they had Empanadas on the menu, I could not think of tasting anything else!
It brought back memories of my mom making these when I was a little girl. I was not a picky eater, but I barely ate growing up. So for me to remember the flavors and the smells coming from our kitchen, we knew I had to sample one.
Unfortunately, I was disappointed, and this is where I stopped. The shell was dry and not mingling with any of the food it held. The meat mixture was decent with a slight zip. But it was missing any exciting flavors.
I remember my mom’s being served hot and crispy, with a tomatoey zing and beef and vegetables. I need to make travel arrangements and take a trip to a little village there and eat a hot fresh empanada made by locals.
Have you been or are you from Patagonia?Would you consider making us an Empanada!?
