The best thing I ate this week...

Simply put: I eat a lot. I spend a lot of time making food, thinking about food, eating food, and of course writing about it. So today I found myself pondering, "what's the best thing I ate this week?" And I've decided to include this bit of foodie reflection on my blog each week.

Sometimes it will be something I have cooked (like the sweet and creamy corn quiche I made yesterday), and other times it will be something someone else made for me. This week, the best thing I ate was the Birria Empanadas at Main Course California. I recently started working part-time at Main Course, and this week I got to spend some time filming the chefs in the kitchen. They were making these delicious little empanadas filled with braised goat meat, olives, raisins, and fresh parsley and mint. I'm a total sucker for a) anything that mixes sweet and savory b) anything inside dough and c) anything fried. Well, these totally fit the bill. Crisp and brown on the outside, sweet and warm on the inside, with a lively kick of mint - they come three to an order and are accompanied by a hearty salad. De-lish!
