Yesterday was Halloween and we were invited to our niece and nephew’s lovely home outside Buenos Aires in Talar del Lago. Our five-year old son and her three-year old played football, rugby and also went trick-or-treating, while we had tea, coffee and Argentinean pastries filled with dulce de leche. It was the first time I tried “cubanitos” which are sugar-cone cigars filled with (need you ask?) dulce de leche. There were also crust-free white-bread sandwiches (sandwich de miga) with assorted fillings which are the standard tea fare here.
The afternoon went by quickly with all the catching up, story-telling and the non-stop doorbell-ringing by trick-or-treaters asking for candy. J and S had a blast too. Happy Halloween !!!
