Mexican Party


Last weekend was the 7th annual Mexican party hosted by Amy and Cheryl.  Mandi and I were lucky enough to go last year, and this year TFIMB was the corporate sponsor (without actually giving any money).  A great time was had by all and I took some pictures of the festivities.  There will be no recipes today except for one vague one for the pork that everyone requested.

Dan:  hey you think i could get the pork recipe for the post today?   im not going to put up any recipes except that one cause it was such a big hit.

Amy: There wasn't a recipe actually.  I put a Mexican dry rub on it that I bought at Target (Archer Farms).  In the bottom of the pots, I put a mixture of orange juice, lime juice, garlic and oregano.  Roasted at 425 for about a half hour to brown a bit, then took it down to 300 for about 5 hours.  Each Boston Butt was about 5-6 lbs.  Oh my god, I'm hungry!

Our gracious hosts.  Thanks guys!

People are starting to arrive.

I was passing out fliers as you can see, she got one.

This happy couple is in Texas gettin' hitched as we speak.  Congrats!

A different angle.  I could never imagine feeding this many people!!   Yet.

Cheryl made tortillas all week.  Over 200!!

The pork all shredded.

Im not sure if these 2 were fussing with the trays a ton, or if I was just drunkenly taking too many pictures, but this made me laugh.

The sun goes down and it is time to eat.

Oh my.

I was first to eat and was finished in time to get a few shots of the assembly line.
