The Pig Roast
Pig roasts are very popular up here and last month we had the opportunity to shot an Anniversary party that featured one. I had to take photos of the pig, of course.
It was a great party with ballroom dancing afterwards! But the pig has stuck in my mind, lol.
I guess I'm one of those people who don't like to think of my meat once being alive and seeing the pig laid out in it's "coffin" was too much for me. I could not eat it, lol. But my husband did and he said it was delicious! Lucky for me they had plenty of other nice food to go around.
See the steam rising?
This guy did all the carving and the pig was hot! He wore these really thick gloves to protect himself from burns I imagine.
It was really interesting to watch him work.
And when he was done, there wasn't much left on the pig.
I was pretty amazed at all the fat that dripped off too! Ew!
I was a little surprised that no one ate the apple. I guess I assumed it was like the worm in tequila and people would fight over it.
Do you want it?
