WORDFUL WEDNESDAY

We went to a birthday party this past Sunday, and let me tell you, they had a massive spread!! They had every imaginable Filipino (homemade) dish you could think of, and I think we were all salivating! A bunch of us went straight over there after church, so our tummy's were all ready for lunch!

So, with the variety of dishes and desserts, I shouldn't have been surprised they had this on the kitchen table! I wish I had brought my camera, but my cell had to do!

Now, these people know how to PARTAY!!!!! I think this was bigger than the 3 year old who was having the birthday!

Be sure to visit 7 Clown Circus for Wordful Wednesday.

Dee said...

LOL! That's a pretty big pig!

I spy lumpia. I like lechon but not sure if I could look at it still in its original form. My kids would be asking a ton of questions. I bet it was all tasty.

I love pork, but I totally can't get past my food still looking like the animal it came from. LOL! Still, what a party that must have been!

Happy said...

Despite the fact that I had a pig for a pet I still love a good pig roast! Yum!

I totally wanted one at my outdoor wedding reception.

Great picture!

Kelli @ RTSM said...

How fun! I have heard of people cooking whole pigs before...but I haven't ever seen one! I don't know if I would want him looking at me while I was eating!!

Alicia W. said...

YUM! My hubs built our very own fire pit in our back yard to cook a pig twice a year and I love it! We like to have big gatherings and all the pulled pork is delish!

Looks like you guys had a great feast!

Jennifer said...

WOW, definitely a feast!

Carissa(GoodnCrazy) said...

Okay sweetie... ??? You do realize that's a PIG on that table!!! :)

I would LOVE LOVE to visit when that kind of feast is going on!!

Wow..he probably was bigger than the 3 year old. That pig looks bigger than my 5 year old. ;o) What a party!

Pam said...

I like pork, but am not sure if I could eat it if it was staring at me. : )

Hope said...

Hi Alicia,

Wow! Something about that makes me shiver. I prefer my food without the head still attached. All the same, it is an interesting photo, and don’t we live in an amazing age…cell phones with cameras…how do you suppose they will top that? Oh, I know it is nothing NEW, but just thinking about how things continue to change is a remarkable. Think of the computers of the 80s with no pictures, and now look what we have. Will things continue to change at the rate they are changing now…and if so…what next?

♥Hope

Lyr said...

WOW! They really pulled out all the stops.

mimi said...

Oh my! That pig is huge! Did you eat any?

Stephanie said...

Oh my goodness...it always amazes me how different all the various cultures are. Just seeing that pictures freaks me out :)

I'm glad you had a wonderful time though and they had great food. That always makes for a fun time!

homeschoolceo said...

Wow, that's scary...but yummy, I bet.

Muthering Heights said...

Ummm, if I were turning three, I might be afraid of this, LOL!

Helene said...

Oh wow, they're serious about this, aren't they? Looks like they caught the pig and stuck him on the "barbie"!! But he is missing the apple in his mouth....isn't he??

ocmist said...

What an awesome looking lunch, and I'll bet it tasted as wonderful as it looked!

My son did a huge pig on a spit that they turned all day long one time for a Luau... YUMMY!

Casey's trio said...

Nothing like homemade filipino cooking:)

blueviolet said...

We did a pig roast recently too, as you may remember, but no head. I can live without the head sitting there.

Otherwise, the spread looks divine.

Alicia, no head, ok?

Laura said...

WOW..... was not expecting THAT! Crazy! I could not eat it, and I love meat!

angie said...

OK. This is just plain weird. SECOND roasted pig I've seen today.

Daphine said...

Growing up where I did (they called my town Little manila) I'm jealous...I haven't had roasted pig in a few years. Folks don't know that's the best tasting meat! You guys Partayyeeed down!
