This past weekend we attended a family reunion hosted by some wonderful people on my mom’s side of the family.
It was a blast.
We had the opportunity to connect with family we don’t see as often as I’d like, to meet extended family we’ve never seen before and enjoy some really, really good food.
Rather than ramble on and on about it, I’ll just share some photos…
Let’s start with the food. There was a lot of it and it was fantastic.
Especially the pit barbecue.
They dug a big pit, built a big fire, let it burn down to coals, wrapped the meat in foil then in burlap then laid it over the coals. They also wrapped up potatoes in foil and hung them in wire baskets from metal fence posts across the pit. The whole thing is then covered with tin then dirt and left to roast for about 12 hours. There was beef roast, beef ribs and lamb. So tender, so flavorful and so, so good.
Thanks to all who worked so hard to make the family reunion a great time for the rest of us!
