My son was definitely a star on the day. He didn't cry during the ceremony and most importantly didn't cry when he was getting baptised with the holy water. I think he knew the significance of the moment and was quietly taking it all in.
The star of the feast was the lechon.(whole suckling pig). I was so excited about eating this. When dad walked through the door carrying the pig there were lots of "oooh" and "aaahh"s from the guests.
Roast pig. YUM! The meat was tender and flavourful. The skin was so crispy
For hor d'oeuvres : salad wrapped in prosciutto with honey and mustard dressing and prawn cocktail.
