Yesterday at the end of the day I was watering my plants and flowers, and I felt the aroma of the firewood afire, quickly I thought "Is officially open the “asado” (Barbecue) season. " Although, here, there´s no bad time to make a good BBQ. Reminds me a TV commercial in a man watching a beautiful day says "Today is a good day for a BBQ" The weather and the man are substitute for another landscape and the weather is changing , until the last man in a stormy day l looks happy at his wife and said: ”This is a good day for a BBQ”End of the story . There´s no bad time for "asado" here
After the “asado” the Argentinean passion are the soccer, the maté, dulce the lech custard (flan) and talfajores. The alfajor is easy to make, basically it consists on padded circles of sweet pastry filled with dulce de leche and sprinkle with icing sugar , to these I have made them, having inspired by those that we buy at FranciscaA, but to these I adds them nuts.
