Yes, the whole darn pig roasted over an open fire for 14 hours or so.
Anyway... what goes best with a hog roast? That's right - beer. And lots of it. So we pull up to my cousin's house to be greeted by this:Much of the evening is spent chatting with the relatives and friends. Chowin down on the yummy pulled pork and all the homemade sides to go with it (think hashbrown casserole, greenbeans, pies, cookies, brownies, etc.)
After a few rounds of Jagermeister shots with Grandma, we hit the pool. And on the radio was a little David Allen Coe - You Don't Have To Call Me Darlin, Garth Brooks - Friends In Low Places (obviously), and then came the one I'd never heard before...
Trailer Choir - Rockin' The Beer Gut (I can't find the lyrics or a video to link due to stupid Websense... but check it out, seriously it's about a woman.)
So we rocked out in the pool, drunk, in the dark, and had a blast until around 2am. And on the way home, my husband turned to me - hangover and all - and said, "Wow... hog roasts are fun! We should do that more often!" My reply was, "Just wait til Grandma's birthday next year... That'll be one hellofa bash!"
Great party, Mark. Thanks!
