A group of us —neighbors and friends— decided to potluck on Christmas day down at the complex’s Fiesta Shelter. On Guam, a fiesta is any party with lots of food, and I think we certainly came through! I’m pretty sure each family brought enough for everyone, so it was quite the spread. Lots of yummy dishes all around, but the first step, of course, is to ensure that the keg is properly set up in the shade.
Of course bacon provides the perfect tone to our fiesta. Cue the devils on horseback! Our Festivus plans kind of fell by the wayside and we just focused on the eating, drinking and staying cool.
Drinking beer in the pool is my new Christmas tradition!
A shame to waste the heads, perhaps, but the atulai we picked up the day before was delicious anyway!
Some coconuts had to be sacrificed for our fiesta purposes.
My chicken was good, until the minor grill fire created some extra charring. All in all, it was a great way to get together with everyone who was far away from their usual Christmas crowd.
