On Friday I told you all about the annual Independence Day Party. I was so excited, and I thought this year would be the biggest one yet. But by Friday night it was clear that a majority of the people were in fact NOT coming, and when I woke up on Saturday morning and checked the temperature, it was a mere 40 degrees out. Way too cold for an outdoor shindig. So we canceled the party.
I already had all the food on hand, so I decided to go ahead and make the pork, but with a few changes. The biggest of these was that I cooked it inside, in the oven. Normally we cook the pork outside because of the heat, but on a 40 degree day, I could use a little extra heat indoors. It still turned out to be amazing.
I also went ahead with the sangria, but only made a single batch, instead of the double and quadruples I usually do.
Next year, I’m promised a bigger event. People are already RSVPing. Let’s hope they remember, and that the weather is more accommodating.
