Christmas Eve Pig Roast

Every year on Christmas Eve our family hosts a pig roast.Our whole family comes to celebrate. I look forward to this party every year. I am able to see all of my family. We have such a great time.


It is a time-honored cuban tradition. The pig takes forever to cook put it tastes super good. it’s always very crispy. They smoke and cook the meat over hot coals so it is super tender. It falls right off the bone! DSC00174.jpg

It is super fun to watch the pig cook. As a way to pass time we talk and catch up with our family while eating cheese!! We also play poker with pennies I always lose because I’m not very good! DSC03319.jpg

We eat the pig with rice and beans, salad, yuca a vegetable similar to a potato and a great gravy. The  meal is always gone super quickly, but if there are left overs we have them the next day!
