Between Meals: Feliz Día de la Memoria por la Verdad y la Justicia

Whatever you think of the Kirchners- mentioning the name here provokes the same responses as saying Haman in a synagogue- Nestor did do one cool thing while in office.

He gave Argentineans (and American culinary students) a day off to commemorate the victims of the last military junta, including an estimated 30,000 "disappeared" political dissidents.

Today, I'll be watching Las Madres: The Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, researching recipes for this weekend's post (baking alfajores!) and giving thanks that Argentina is ruled by a corrupt democratically elected official rather than a corrupt dictatorship
