There are some foods in the Philippines that I can’t cook here in the US. One of the foods that I miss from my native country is roasted pig. That was one of many goodies that were served on my going away party and my mother’s birthday last year.
This was one of the pigs that was raised by my parents in the village. Aside from pigs, other livestock that my parents are currently raising are chickens, goats, a cow and a carabao. My nephew’s birthday is coming up next month. I am expecting that they are going to roast another one of the pigs they are currently raising. One thing that I like about raising livestock is that you always have something fresh to butcher on occasions like birthdays, fiestas and Christmas.
I keep this kind of picture around to torture myself. My hubby is looking forward to having crunchy roasted pig during our upcoming trip this fall.
Here are a few more of my favorite home cooked goodies.
