Menu: Flippy chicken, carrots, veggie tray, phad thai, GF chocolate cake
Sometimes you get busy around your birthday, or you are almost a birthday twin with someone celebrating a milestone. This past weekend we decided to belatedly celebrate New Person’s (NP) birthday with an unbirthday potluck.
Since we are all internet and Facebook users I (FFB) managed to set up the evening by creating an event. Sadly, I’m not as Facebook savvy as I pretend as I forgot to invite the host and unbirthday celebrant to her own party. We kept it small and gave ourselves time to get fancy for a night on the town after dinner.
NP went with her feature recipe – Flippy chicken. Rotisserie roasted chicken with a spice rub.
I (FFB) was lazy and found a pre-made veggie tray on sale at the grocery store, it made for a nice appy while we visited.
Friend, who has co-hosted dinners with me in the past, was brave and tried a phad thai recipe on us. It was delicious. NP was even ok with a few green onions being cooked into the base.
CTG went with boiled carrots to make sure we all got a balanced meal.
GF volunteered to make the cake as she’s been spending some time at home these days. A rich and moist coconut flour cake. It had spiced apple jelly between layers and was frosted with a coconut milk chocolate mousse. Because of the mousse the leftover cake needs refrigeration, I don’t think leftovers will last too long.
Even though my master plan for the evening was foiled by Victoria Beer Fest after party-ers filling up the pubs early. It was a great night with tasty eats.
