Sean made an authentic Argentine meal for us this week. Yes, you read that correctly... Sean made it! ;)
Ever since he's been home from his mission I've heard about "choripan." I guess it's a popular street vendor item there. Basically it is a sandwich made with grilled chorizo sausage, french bread and chimichurri. The sandwich rocked-- and I loved that I didn't have to make it. I also discovered I love chimichurri. I love love love it. Those Argentines know what's up.
For dessert we had dulce de batata, which was also really good. I'm not even sure how to really explain it. It's like candied sweet potato/gelatin that you cut into a wedge. You serve it with queso cremoso (creamy cheese). Definitely unlike anything I had ever tasted before, but surprisingly very good!
