Hot food on the board

Here’s a tip with hot food. If you place a hot pan from oven or stove on the board, you need a hot pad. Sometimes I do this.

Or, you can cook the meat (this recipe), and right before serving, place it in a serving bowl.

In other words, NEVER place something very hot on my new boards.

Here’s what I love about a dinner board

If you have a big enough table, you can set it in the middle of the table.

Or set on your kitchen counter with a stack of dishes. Let everyone dig in and make their own tacos.

It’s fun to set up a taco bar, but on a “board.”

And guess what? The board has a lip so the food doesn’t fall off. You can move it from table to counter, or even bring it outside!

I’m so grateful for my RE community here, and for your love and support. I never dreamed an USA company like JK Adams would work with little ol’ me, Sandy Coughlin.
