Don't Cry for Me Argentina

Last week we had a "Girl's Night" at my parents house. My sister served a mission in Argentina and she and her former mission companion (now honorary sister) agreed to cook us dinner. Argentine Style! (Here we have: sister #3, sister #4, sister #1, me, "missionary" sister #5, "missionary companion"/honorary sister #6, Mom. FYI: I didn't number them to choose favorites, it's by birth-order. I love you all equally!)

We had some YUMMY stuff! Empanadas with beef, hard boiled egg and onion inside. (these were my favorite!)
They even let us help (a little).

Here's what was on the menu: Empanadas, Milanese de Pollo (Chicken Milanesa), Tortilla de papa (like a frittata with swiss chard), Ensalada Rusa (Russian Salad *huh?* apparently very popular in Argentina) and for dessert.....
Bizcochuelo. This is a sponge cake that was topped with Dulce de Leche. Creamy caramelized goodness!

Thanks Sis! Let's do it again!

It looks like fuN! Is it sad to say that what appealed to me most was the can of Dr Pepper? I really gotta get over these food issues before me Elder comes home, he wants to cook stuff like this for us too.....
Oh, and how lucky are you for all those sisters???!!!!

That was a fun night! My favorite was the chicken Milanese (Italian chicken, Russian Salad?). And the best part of the cake was that the only fat in the whole recipe was 1 TB oil.
