Today it’s gloomy and wet with a chill in the air but I found these pictures from December. They’re of the small construction site beside our house, where lunch is an important matter during the sweltering days of summer (remember those?)
No builder’s tea and a ham roll for these construction workers. Instead lunch is ribs and cuts of beef barbequed over a portable grill; a workers asado. Meaty, juicy, woody flavours drift across the garden and make me hungry. Workers asados are more common on Fridays but increasingly seemed to be grilled midweek too. These frontline workers can’t construct on an empty stomach.
