#outaboutnc: The Story of Three Little Empanadas at Calavera Empanada and Tequila Bar

I volunteer on my school's PTA. In fact, I'm being voted in as next year's President tonight. Yes, it is a commitment, but I've gotten to know a lot of wonderful people thanks to my volunteer work on my children's PTA. In fact, I've found new lifelong friends that I enjoy hanging out with it.

One of the fun things we do is we go to lunch when we can after board meetings. This week, we were in empanada heaven. It was my first trip to Calavera Empanada and Tequila Bar in downtown Raleigh. We skipped the tequila (we'll save that for another night), but went overboard on our empanada ordering.

We all got different ones. I was the only one in the group who had not been at the restaurant before. I was torn on what to get. They all sounded so good. We all opted for the three empanada lunch special. It's like three empanadas for around $7.99.   Three is a lot. I was full all day. Next time, I may just get two. But, it's so hard to narrow down your choices. Here's a glimpse of the menu. My favorite was the Mexicali Cheese Steak. However, I loved the Roasted Cauliflower and the Holy Frijoles, too. That's the order they were on my plate, and honestly, the order I liked them best, too.

We celebrated Cinco de Mayo a little early this year.
