Pre Party Prep
Days and weeks have been a little crazy around here.
And now we're preparing for a fortieth birthday party this coming Saturday.
What began as a small barbecue for some close friends is becoming an all-out food fest to rival the Adirondack Festival of Food and Wine.
Not only have we been scanning recipe books for delectable desserts, notable nibblies and scrumptious side-dishes, but this weekend saw the 'fatted pig' killed with pork being a feature of the forthcoming festivities. Roast Pork, Smoked Pork, Pulled Pork, Pickled Pork, ham, bacon, pork chops,sausages.
I do hope everybody enjoys pork.
We've also been repairing houseyard fences, washing walls, installing a new bathroom ceiling, de-cluttering sheds, mowing grass, slashing paddocks, power-washing verandahs and planting out flowers.
We do love a party in these parts.
PS. HAPPY BIRTHDAY UNCLE MARTYN!
