sometimes you don’t. That candy saying fit my world today. There are some days when things just don’t click. Today was one of those days. I was all set to sit down and get some serious writing done but the website that I work through was down. Evidently they changed domain or internet providers and the promised 2 hour down time from last evening turned into most of the day today.
I decided instead to do some spring cleaning which went fairly well, with frantic checks back to the computer to see if things were back online, of course they weren’t until it was time for me to begin my role as chauffer/driving instructor.
I had great plans to make the kids a special Cinco de Mayo dinner of chicken empanadas and rice with a salad. Sounds yummy, right? I remember these really good chicken empanadas we used to make years ago and I knew the recipe came from Emeril. I searched far and wide and found the recipe and made them. Here’s how it looked.
They came out looking delicious. I served them with a mexican rice and salad.
It didn’t go over well – I could tell the second that they sat down. Tim didn’t care for them and barely picked at one (I made 24). To complicate things, the empanadas that I remembered were not at all the same. They didn’t taste the same or I remembered them differently – I don’t know which it was. They were okay, certainly not inedible, but they were not what I had imagined. I guess that I am off my game today – I don’t really know why. Perhaps its because extraño a mi mejor amigo en el mundo ancho del conjunto.
Oh well, Happy Cinco de Mayo!
