The B-Team: Cornish hen, Apricot, and Goat Cheese Empanadas with a Duo of Apricot Salsas

On to the captain of the B-Team, that nice guy with a little bit of chip on his shoulder because he never made it to varsity. (I think this high school analogy device is wearing thin.) While we both enjoyed this recipe, it seemed slightly contrived and a little over the top.
We had hoped for quail, but we had none and couldn't find any. We stewed cornish game instead (this would have been nice with goose), with caramelized onions, dried apricots and a Spanish white. In a separate dish, we made a fried rice using ghee, cloves and ginger. Both were placed in empanadas with slices of egg or alternately green olive and goat cheese. The two salsas were ginger, sweet pepper, and apricot (1) and then stewed apricots, scotch bonnets and wine (2).
