DINNER 184: Monday, July 3, 2006

We went to a party at the house of one of Wendy’s tech’s parents this evening. They host an Independence Day party each year, and we were pleased to have been invited.

Dinner was Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork sandwiches and lots of side dishes. I prepared a Diplomat Cake (with a new, improved buttercream icing) and a batch of Glazed Honey Bars. Both were very tasty!

The hosts shot off a bunch of fireworks and we enjoyed them very much. We’ve been impressed this year with the level of ‘home’ firework shows we’ve seen. I remember them being …less spectacular… than they were this year.

Here’s the recipe for the Glazed Honey Bars…
