Spending the Sundays

starting the party up



I loved this salad: Mixed Greens with Avocado and Peaches served with Plum Dressing



Alcohol + Food



Why not fight for this box of Ice Cream?


Sunday asado is the culture of Buenos Aires, friends and families gathering together in the beautiful afternoon eating and having a good time. An asado, is an event that is over-flooded with delicious grilled meat in someone’s backyard that lasts throughout the whole lazy afternoon. Obviously, these asados aren’t vegan-friendly, though the varieties of snacks and salads are more than enough to fill the non-meat eaters.  We are fortunate to know this great couple who has a beautiful backyard, right near our house-hence the asado on our beautiful Sunday. Lucky us; there shall be more asados, especially with the beautiful weather coming around. 🙂

Prepare a hungry stomach for an asado; the meal begins with some cheeses and nibbles, transitioning into some chorizos sausages, some salads, meat…and more meat, more meat, more side dishes and then finishing with dessert. Yeup, and flowing alcohol in between.
