Did you watch the World Cup? Who were you cheering for? My husband served a religious mission in Argentina so we were very excited that they made it to the final game against Germany. We got together with my sister-in-law and her husband to watch the game today. ( He also served in Argentina)  They all looked adorable in their matching Argentina jerseys.

To help us really enjoy the spirit of the game we made Ham and Cheese Empanadas and ate them as we cheered on Argentina. What a game! Even though they didn't win we had such a great time watching, good fun and fun company! You can't beat that! And now, I have an easy recipe to share with you
