This Little Piggie Was Delicious

June 2, 2010 § 2 Comments

On Monday, Panacea’s holiday, our husbands roasted a whole pig in JM’s backyard. Nothing says “party” like cooking a whole beast.  I’ll save the photo for the end of my post, out of respect for our vegetarian friends who might not see the beauty (stop reading now if this applies to you).  To us, this pig was a wonder to behold and taste. The skin was crackly crunch that dissolved in your mouth.  The meat was as succulent as can be.  Fat can do amazing things. 

Cooking a pig is an all day affair, and our husbands really applied themselves to this important task.  The fire was going by 10 am, dinner was at six.  They cooked the pig in my mother-in-law’s Caja China.  That’s a metal & wood box that mimics a pit in the ground –  we can’t all dig a huge trench in our yard to accommodate roasting whole animals.  That would be impractical.  It was a marvelous dinner, and the sun came out just in the nick of time.  If we keep cooking like it’s summer, it will come.
