Couch Day + Pork Party '12 Recap + 500th Post!

Pin It
This year, our beloved, made-up Couch Day celebration almost didn't happen. But, the husband insisted on it. And I'm glad for that. Some new and exciting things took place this time around.

1) I made a delicious pineapple salsa to go with slow-roasted pork. Enjoy the recipe at the end of the post.
2) We tried playing board games. It kind of worked, kind of didn't. We were all in agreement that Pictionary Man is pretty dumb. And we got to know each other better through Whoonu.
3) Our friend decided to read a couple of Grimm Tales aloud. We learned what really happened in Cinderella. It was bloody.

And per last year, we ate a lot of pork! Delicious, tender, rich pork In the end, I was tired and sleepy, and we had a lot of dirty dishes and empty beer cans, which can only one thing -- Couch Day was a success.

Before I finish up here, just wanted to mention, THIS happens to be my 500th post. Hot damn. That's a lot of posts. Hope you've enjoyed reading them, as much as I've enjoyed sharing.
