Empanadas, Cookies & Hot Dogs (recap day 30, 4/11/20)

For lunch we had leftover hot dogs, chips and dip. I’m enjoying these old school meals.

For dinner Matt made paprika home fries with baby chard from our produce delivery and these chicken empanadas with olives and hard-boiled eggs. They were so good! We used frozen empanada wrappers so they were really quick to make. Normally we’d make our own dough but we weren’t sure what the flour situation at the time so he bought frozen. It was a great use of them and used a lot of ingredients we always have on hand and ground chicken, which can be a little bland but was really perked up by the spices and olives. I posted the recipe here.

Matt made some cookies using this recipe but using half salted caramel chips and half mini semi sweet chocolate chips and eliminating the sea salt sprinkle. I have a tendency to pick up fun baking chips but not always having them earmarked for something specific so they just accumulate. The mini chips were leftover from making black bottom cupcakes.

Non-food related activities:

We watched a lot of Babylon Berlin on Netflix. I do not feel like I am learning any useful German from watching it. It is so well-made! Not the most relaxing television to watch right now though.

The rest of the day is sort of a blur.
