It was a couple of days before pay day, and I decided to be virtuous and use the contents of the fridge and freezer rather than buying any new groceries. So I had a dig around and unearthed a UFO (Unidentified Frozen Object), which I soon realised was cubes of pork in a Pinchos Morunos rub. Although I have absolutely no memory of when I put it there. Surely the last time I made pinchos Morunos we were living in the other house? Surely it hasn't been 18 months in the freezer?
Anyway, I was pretty confident that the spice mixture they were sitting in would have protected them from freezer burn.
I spiked the chunks of meat onto soaked bamboo skewers with some pieces of onion, made up some tomatoes Andaluz with our last two, slightly sad-looking tomatoes, steamed our last bunch of British asparagus (the supermarkets are all stocking Peruvian again) and poured a couple of shot glasses of gazpacho (bought - a very nice one). We couldn't be bothered lighting the Weber, so we cooked the kebabs and pita breads under the grill in the kitchen.
It was a very tasty dinner, and a fitting way to farewell British asparagus for another year.
