January 14, 2012 – Our team met for our second orientation meeting in Pocatello, Idaho at the home of Rich and Kathy Kirkham. We learned a little about Argentine cuisine and if its anything like what we ate at the Kirkhams, we will really enjoy the food. This photo shows a yummy plate of ??oquis which are like tiny italian dumplings and an empanada con carne, which is a flaky little turnover with meat inside. They also are made with fruit or filling and are called empanada dulce. Speaking of dulce (which means sweet) we had a jar of delicious dulce de leche, a sort of creamy carmel made from milk that makes everything taste good! We also tried mate, an herbal tea that is famous in Argentina, and mineral water. Fun lunch!
