While the ladies were getting dressed by Holly Ellis...
the boys quickly found their way into the barn and unearthed long lost treasures:
like this head,
a pogo stick.
a place to pee.
and a perfect slingshot.
Thank you Mother Nature.
but here's where the REAL treasure was:
a beautiful lamb from White Oak Pastures
and my all time favorite Rancher: Will Harris
(no, that's not him in the photo)
prepared to perfection by the one and only David Bancroft
My apologies for not having the words to describe the experience of this roasted lamb.
It rocked! seems to fall short.
but sadly, that's the best I can do.
More beautiful food was prepared by Tasia Malakasis and the Country Living Staff: oysters, pimento chevre, boiled peanuts, figs stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in prosciutto, and a decadent goat cheese ice cream with strawberries.
OH! And then there was the band:
and then the sun went down
Fortunately I had my iPhone to get these photos.
Unfortunately, you'll have to wait until next year to see the official ones taken for Country Living.
