Puerco Asado!


Tracy, I'm sorry- just don't look.

Christmas dinner, in the Cuban tradition. I have to admit, for a gringo I am pretty good at it. I begin with a prayer thanking God for the lechon, then quickly summon the ancient Cuban spirit Chango & ask him to oversee this gringo's sazon de puerco. I prepare my own mojo dressing, then carefully massage it into the pig with my own hands. Then it's into the caja china for 5 hours of roasting. Finally, my father in law Maximo & I proudly flash the #1 sign.
Somos un buen equipo.

Ha! No worries. Pretty good for a gringo.
