Pig Roast at The Compound

I was party time at The Compound this past Saturday.  Well, party as much as a bunch of us “old timers” can party.  We had a few normal chores to take care of, but the day was devoted to kicking back.

R&B purchased a pig roaster, so we gave that a whirl this weekend, and between Ron and James (Chef and Sous Chef) the roasted pig was tasty!  We followed that up with black beans and rice, corn fritters, mango bread and mojitos to keep the Cuban theme going.

Here are a few videos;


The La Caja China Roasting Box(#2) was impressive, and even had the instructions on the side of the box, so you never leave home without them. 

One thing this group does well, is prepare and eat food!

    1. It tasted even better than it looked!

  2. Izzy,

    I love roasting a pig in the back of your place. We used to do this when I lived in south Florida. Did you also make Plantains???

    I miss the tastes of the traditional Cuban foods found in Florida.

    1. Oh I wanted fried plantains! I love those things, but they don't love my hips. Since we had enough other things to eat, we opted to leave them off the menu.

      We used to live in Cutler Ridge, and while I miss the food, I don't miss the traffic!


We love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
