lets roast a pig

Happy birthday to my husband, best friend, and fellow bacon lover.

I knew we were the perfect match 8 years ago when we both ordered extra bacon on our burgers. We have been inseparable ever since.

Taylor turned 30 on Friday. It’s a big birthday and I wanted to celebrate the best way I know how.  Lots of friends, great food, and in this case a giant pig.

Taylor was totally in the dark and the expression on his face when he saw a pig roasting in our backyard was priceless.  If you are a vegetarian you may not want to see the below photos.  However, this was quite the experience and I hope you enjoy the pictures.

It all started at a small meat farm 30 miles away…..

My best friend and I went to pick up this guy.

He was pretty heavy!

Once the pig was home safe and sound a whole bunch of our friends came over to help set up the biggest surprise party for Taylor.  It was awesome!

Lots of picnic tables.

And plenty of this goodness!

And this goodness.

But more importantly there was this.

35 pounds of our favorite kind of meat.  Taylor was over the moon!

Best meat of our life.

Celebrated with all of our friends.

On one of the most beautiful New England evenings filled with bon fires, tiki torches, pork, and lots of whisky.

It was the perfect birthday celebration for my awesome husband.

Happy birthday Taylor.

    Happy birthday Taylor! Sorry I haven’t been following you lately, but just got caught up on the past 6 months of your blog, the photos keep getting better and better and tell a story in their own way. Love the one of you and Henry a while back looking gagsta, I see the king ropes hat is still with you, and Taylor hasn’t shaved since last Thanksgiving….all things good. Glad life is treating all of you well!
