For those who don’t know, a “boucherie” (pronounced BOO-SHUH-REE) is a pig roast. It involves lots of friends & lots of food :)
Since we moved in our house two years ago, my husband had been having plans of a boucherie in our yard with all of our family and friends. He planned it this year on LSU’s bye-week. It just so happened to fall on my birthday this year! Seth told me to think if it as a big birthday party for myself…yea right!
The day started off with my munchkins helping Daddy bake a birthday cake for me! They loved cracking the eggs and licking the beaters from the mixer.
The cooking started around 8am and didn’t end until late afternoon. The food was delicious. From the pig we had pork roast, cracklin’, and hog head cheese. Friends brought chips, dips, desserts, etc…
I was so excited some friends from work came! They are so crazy and fit right it. Gary even made a shirt to wear :)
The band, Chiquita Sunrise, were a hit as usual. We love those guys. My nephew, Kaleb, loved them too! He was so mesmerized and could not take his eyes off the band. He must have inherited Grampie’s love for music.
We couldn’t move our playhouse from under the patio, so one of the guitarist just set up right on the playhouse porch! I bet that was a first!
We had such a fun time with our friends and family. We have some pretty awesome people in our lives! We have had request to make this an annual party…hmmm we shall see!
