I’ve been saying “Uruguay” wrong my entire life. Apparently, it’s “oooo-rah-gway,” as in, “oooo” that food looks good.
Located in South America, Uruguay is made of gentle hills and a glistening coastline. As with much of South America, this is a meat-lover’s paradise. Beef is the specialty of choice, though blood sausages and other offal are included as well. In this, it reminds me of Argentina (which we cooked three and a half years ago!).
The cattle are raised in the heart of the country, while produce like corn and tomatoes grow on the coastal plains.
Wash it all down with a strong cup of yerbe mate tea or clericó, which is like a white sangria, made with fruit juice and wine.
Then, when all is said and done, perhaps you might ponder this proverb from Uruguay:
Better to marry a neighbor than a stranger.
Do you agree with this line of reassoning? Why or why not??
