Nuestro Primer Asado

Today, Jesse and I had our first asado. Asados are Paraguayan barbecues. Almost every apartment has a grill in the back for asados and there are quite a few places to buy big cuts of beef for asados. They are a very common occurance and a facet of Paraguayan culture. Yesterday, our neighbor Dan (high school English teacher) took Jesse to a store that specializes in asado meat. Below, Jesse and Dan are grilling the meat.
Below, is Jesse's picture of the meat. You can't tell by the picture but the cuts of meat are huge! And the amazing part is, that we ate almost all of it!

We had all the neighbors over, Chaya, Shauna, Dan, his wife, and Jesse's principal (who loves meat) and his fiance. It was our first time hosting at our new apartment and it was a lot of fun. I have a feeling, there will be a lot of asados in our future.
