Everyone should attend a pig roast in their lifetime.

by Elizabeth on October 28, 2013

Happy Monday :-) I hope your week is off to a great start! We had such a great weekend over here. Joe gets home early on Fridays which is always nice, so we ended up meeting our family in the park for some wings, pizza, and play time.


After it got dark (and the mosquitos got bad) we headed over to my sister in law’s new house for some more hang out time. Noah found some new shoes he liked… We weren’t the least bit worried.

Saturday we had Joe’s company pig roast on the agenda. I’ve never been to a pig roast and I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical but it was a complete blast. They had stuff for all ages such as hay rides, a bounce house, basketball, ping pong, and bags and the food was INCREDIBLE! There was regular BBQ along with a wild hog that was roasted. My favorite
was the jalapeño cheddar sausage. I even snagged a to go box ;-)

We spent the night at my parents house and took some family pictures Sunday afternoon. I can’t wait to show you soon…

Have you ever been to a rig roast? Tell me about your weekend!!

No pics of the food? The pig roast sounds delicious! I’ve never been to one :(

I ran my first marathon, the Marine Corps, on Sunday. It was an amazing experience! And now I am so sore haha

I love pig roasts! I went to wedding once (The theme was country), and they had a pig roast! It was pretty cool! This weekend we went to see Disney on Ice and did a really fun corn maze!

We had a pig roast for one of our annual father’s day picnics and it was definitely a blast! It’s kind of odd to see the entire pig but once you taste the amazing-ness, your opinions change pretty fast (says the vegetarian) lol!

I went to a pig roast in Hawai’i before I was vegetarian and it was super fun! We also had a pig roast for my high school graduation party. Now, I wouldn’t attend one probably, but so glad you had fun!

Definitely have never been to a pig roast. Would be a fun experience though that’s for sure! I don’t eat meat or dairy so the smell would probably just tempt me the whole time! HAHA!

OMG that slide looks ah-mazing – was it big enough for you to go on it, or only for kids??

I’m sure it tastes amazing, but I have never been and probably won’t ever go to a pig roast. I love to eat meat, but I can’t handle watching it cooking when it still looks like an animal. LOL

My friends actually hosted a Luau themed couples shower for our wedding, and our friend did a roasted pig! His wife gave him a “pig box” for Christmas one year….isn’t that what you always wanted for Christmas?!
