Barry and I needed a little lay-low time this past weekend. Time at home with good music and not much on the agenda. I spent several hours in the kitchen making comfort food with which to stock our cupboards and freezer. There was granola baking. Pizza dough making. Vegetable roasting. And curry pumpkin empanada preparing. If you know the way I roll in the kitchen, you know it's impossible for me not to make substitutions in recipes. This time, that meant acorn squash in place of pumpkin. I popped the first round of empanadas in the oven after work this evening. Oh, baby! I'm psyched for round two tomorrow.
