Pumpkin Empanadas at DC Noodles
Picky eaters might be surprised at how much they like the crispy pumpkin empanadas with fresh cucumber relish from DC Noodles. There’s two per order so little ones can share, or devour both on their own. Parents who are fond of a little spice in their dishes should try the Red Curry noodles with Asian pumpkin. It tastes like fall with a little bit of summer hanging on.
