MY GOOSE IS COOKED ( in this case my pig)
This week's photohunters theme is COOKED/COOKING- Thanks to TNCHICK.
Many, many years ago my husband and I participated in a gourmet club (well, 2 actually). This gave us the opportunity to gather a bunch of our crazy friends and cook up a storm....revolving around a chosen theme.
Here, we have a pig roast that I decided to attempt. My husband absolutely refused to drain the lily pond so that I could roast the pig the proper way- by being buried and covered in banana leaves... I really thought the pond would have been perfect.
My second option was to roast the sucker (or suckling, shall I say) in the oven. He weighed about 40 pounds and was just a tad too long for the oven. Consequently I had to cut him in half to roast him. That is why he has a lovely belt made of starfruit.
All in all he was magnificent! We ended up just placing him in the center of the table and ripping the flesh right off of him with our bare hands- he was THAT good.
This next photo is a shot of most of us in our "traditional" hawaiian garb. I even dressed my son up...much to his dismay.
I apologize for the quality of the photo. The photographer seems to have had one too many mai tai's. Ah well, he was more fun that way.
Never eat more than you can lift.
