Sundays of roast in family

An old custom that is maintained in most Mendoza homes. Sunday's roast can't miss. Everyone has his role.

As we are

As a boy we wait for him next to the grill, seeing how the elders do it. Eager to learn, that the day will come when they entrust you to do the roast. As an adult the time comes, you take charge of the grill and you are responsible for contributing that old Argentinian custom. As an older adult, you're waiting for him at the table, maybe a little tired of that routine so but so repetitive. Even so,   Sunday's asado in Mendoza is not negotiated.  

When the type family is united: father, mother and two minor children. When the type family is a bit renga because their children have migrated and the empty nest syndrome starts to emerge. When a family that is not the model, or everyone imagines as little, is sitting at the table. When a friend or friend of your children goes to the table because he stayed to sleep the night before. When you have to eat fast because the game starts at 14. When you're not very hungry because the bite was deadly.   Any of these situations can occur, but the roast, on Sunday, will always be on the table.  

  Whims and concessions  

The grill is a brave task. Especially if this   it intends to please the taste of all diners.   Thus, you will need to take out some cuts earlier than others, serving the drier or more cooked meat, according to the pretentiousness.

Table locations are also a topic for discussion.   The grill, on the tip. This marks the tradition   , so that you are more comfortable when making the round trip with the grill.   And the rest of the places must be respected in the same way.   If a child has not eaten at home for a long time, he better feel where he did before and not take his mother's place. This can explode. The same for the teen's friend, who just got up and attend the table asking for breakfast, getting a sausage and black pudding as if they were coffee with milk.

  The infaltables  

The roast is accompanied yes or yes, by tradition,   with salads, bread and red wine.   None of that should be missing on the table. The typical salad, mixed, never fails: tomato, lettuce and onions. But there are variables. So an aunt who's coming in a long time wants to look good and falls with   Beet salad, another corn with carrots and a Waldorf.   There's not much to say about bread. At most, it would be nice to serve it fresh from the grill, with a slight toast. Whereas   wine should be served alone, without soda, at most, with ice   .

After lunch, the table starts to unzip.   Diners get up, homeowners and some educated guest help to remove dishes and   So, Sunday is done. Neither slow nor lazy,   adults in the family retire to the room, is that they have 2 hours of nap ahead.
