I’m Bananas For Ana’s Empanadas


Mom and my brother and I walked out of the Lebanon outdoor pool, a very fun but strict pool, with a lap pool, a fountain and splash area, and a diving board. I hadn’t had much breakfast and I had been swimming for a while so we drove over to the Thursday Lebanon farmers’ market. I can’t remember the last time I went because my family always goes to the Wednesday Hanover farmers’ market because it is closer. When we got there I could see and smell so many different kinds of food! Out of all of the different cultures the food came from with the different tastes and looks, there was one stall that really stood out, Ana’s Empanadas. Empanadas are Latin American cuisine, little bread crescents filled with whatever you would like to put inside. In this case I chose the sweet onion and cheese, with some chimichurri sauce on the side. The Empanada was cheesy and gooey and a little sweet although I wasn’t getting a lot of that onion. The bread on the outside was perfect, a little crispy but not too much and it wasn’t burnt. The chimichurri sauce was at the perfect amount of spiciness and a little creamy. I really suggest going to this farmers’ market in Lebanon NN over any other market if you are close enough.

Tip: When you go bring lots of money for the Empanadas, the pretzels, and the popcorn and the lemonade (you can get the same lemonade and popcorn at the Hanover farmers’ market).

  1. Hello Murphy – I am enjoying your blog immensely. Hoping that I am within drooling distance next time you do an in-kitchen taste test. “Miam miam!”
