We pushed the celebration back two weeks, since there were several New Year’s parties already. And we didn’t play Cripple Mr. Onion, but it was a success nonetheless!
The pignata head presided over the festivities. Up close, Zoe wasn’t so sure of it, but at a bit of a distance, she liked to put the felt heart back in it. Pretty cute, that kid!
I dug out the usual decorations and put them up (but couldn’t get a non-blurry picture of the “sausage link” garlands).
Utter deliciousness, in the form of veggie-bacon-wrapped, blue-cheese-stuffed dates. There were no leftovers of these.
Beer cheese bread. Not really Hogswatch-themed, but good nonetheless.
Truffles (get it?!) and pig-themed goodies.
White House Punch (with champagne on the side). We also had fixings for Bacon Salt bloody marys, but didn’t end up making any.
Jackfruit carnitas. Jackfruit is AMAZING! Looks just like pulled pork.
Mashed “turnips.” (Actually, mashed rutabagas, since the grocery store only had rutabagas. But 1-they’re close to turnips, and 2-they’re delicious. Watery, though. I cooked off some of that liquid before we ate.)
Jeremy and Kimmie brought homemade hummus, with pita triangles and crudite. Yum! And that paprika pig!
And Dara and Tiffianna brought cupcakes with the cutest pig toppers!
ETA: And we played one game of Pass the Pigs (which Kimmie won, and took home a pig statue and pig mini-coatrack I had but didn’t want as her prizes), and then two rounds of Thunderstone (Tiffianna won the first round, and Dara the second). And then it was late, so I went to bed. 🙂
