Today is my mom’s birthday. She was coming for dinner so we wanted something special. Dessert, buttertarts … that was easy! Even better, it doubled as part of her gift when I sent some home with her! Another bonus, I owed a thank you to a friend. Her whole family was pleased! I make pretty amazing buttertarts! I will do a post on them in the near future, also a pastry lesson!
Today though, I want to highlight the rest of the meal We made the same meal a last week, it was ever so good ( see Planking It from Sept 15th)! This time we made the potatoes in foil pans, so they didn’t spread over the plank. It worked really well. They still picked up some of the smoke flavour and didn’t make a mess!
If you have never used a plank before, I challenge you to do so. One of the best things in the smell. I will record it for you, as soon as the world wide web adds the smell feature! I stood on patio taking deep breaths and smiling. Ahhhh, the anticipation. Fortunately, dinner tasted as good as it smelled!
Happy Birthday Mom!!
