Graduation party/pig roast




On Saturday we had a graduation party/pig roast for our girl, at our home. Hubby-with the help of some friends-roasted a pig. I-ordered some food, made some food, and friends and family made food and helped us out. Thank you (you know who you are!), from the bottom of our hearts. We couldn't have done it without you! For hubby and me-this was a big job. We were both wiped on Sunday, but today-we are feeling much better-thank you God!

I wanted to list what was on the menu-here-so I don't forget.

On the menu was:

plain pork, sweet and sour pork, and bbq pork
buns
potato salad
macaroni salad
Frito salad*
grape salad*
spicy pretzels*
puppy chow*
baked beans
green bean casserole
veggies and dip
fruit salad
sweet and sour smokies
bacon wrapped water chestnuts
stuffed jalapenos
relish tray
cookies
red velvet cake
coffee
iced tea
pop
water

*recipes for these can be found under the food category. I'm just too lazy to put in the links!
