     Nothing says summer in Chicago like an awesome barbecue.  Our high school friend, who is an amazing chef, invited us to his pig roast.  This 60lb. hog was slow cooked Cuban style, with not an ounce of fat to be found.  Probably the best pork I've ever eaten! Not to mention, herbed butter encrusted salmon, corn on the cob, octopus, and kefte kabobs. If I wasn't chasing the kids the whole afternoon, I would have taken more tantalizing food pictures.  Still, the unusually cool weather, indie music, and good friends made it an afternoon to remember.


  1. never thought that a roasted pig could look so nice in a photo! welldone, Marina, great photos, especially the piggy-doggy one!

  2. Thanks Ioanna! I love the piggy-doggy one too. Surprisingly all the puppies were well behaved.
