Cooking In Foil: Absolutely Foolproof
August 12, 2015 21 Comments
Do you like to get presents? How about opening up your dinner?
I am a fan of gifts of all types (yes, my birthday is coming up – 46 years old!). If you give me a gift of food, I will be quite happy and even more thrilled if it is healthy.
Though, chocolates will never be turned away at my house.
My kids were given these gifts at dinner without any explanation. They are always bugging me with, “What’s for dinner?” so I told them they were getting roasted snail bottoms.
They usually stop asking when I say “snail bottoms”.
This is a fun recipe to mix it up and (unless you don’t read the recipe) – you can’t go wrong.
Have you tried food in foil?
