Here's to you, Mom
One of the more interesting potluck dinners tonight, theme was "Tribute to Mom." Above you can see Andrew carrying his "beer butt chicken" outside in the cold, after an oven malfunction mandated moving the chicken mid-roast. That's dedication to the cause.
As for me, I had to make manti, originally a Turkish dish but for me something that I will always associate with my mom's edition, which includes pasta, plain yogurt, ground beef (or Quorn mince in my case), and crushed red pepper. Wikipedia may disagree, but I think that's the correct way to make it. Most of the attendees agreed after they got over their initial resistance to hot yogurt. Thanks Mom!
