don't cry for me argentina

My children are so sick of hearing me sing the lines to that classic song every time we talk about Argentina.
But they now know the meaning behind it.

Here is what we cooked.

Pastel de papas.
Which is basically cooked mince sandwiched between mashed potato.

And a salad- their salad only had lettuce and tomato but I had to add some cucumbers from the garden and a nice dressing with parsley and mint from the garden.

Everyone really liked this and have requested it again.

Then yesterday morning we had Churros for morning tea.

You boil water, salt and butter and then add the flour and cook.
Then you roll the dough into shapes and deep fry in hot oil and sprinkle with icing sugar.
In Argentina they serve it with dulce de leche which is basically a tin of condensed milk boiled until it caramelises.
I didn't bother with this but got a tin of caramel fill out of the pantry and heated it until it was smooth.
Dip your Churros into the caramel and enjoy.
