Is a new pope a good enough reason to suspend Lenten penances for an evening? I hope so. In case you're looking for a meal to celebrate our new Pope Francis and his Argentine heritage, how about empanadas or steaks with chimichurri? For desert, tres leches cake is a classic South American confection, but I'm also eyeing these alfajores.
Update: How could I forget? Dulce de Leche on almost anything (cookies, coffee, ice cream) would also be an excellent choice. Here's a microwave method, among others, if you're pressed for time.
