Preparations are underway for my family’s annual Canada Day party. Now in it’s 7th year, the first weekend of July is spent with our favourite people devouring copious amounts of seasonally tasty food, playing popular backyard games (think three-legged races, tetherball, etc.) and facing off in my handmade Canadian trivia game, pitting the men against the women to see which demographic knows more about their native land. This year’s trivia theme is food (no surprise there!) and I’m sure the questions I’ve come up with are going to stump my guests.
As the hostess, I’m in charge of appetizers, the main (read: meat), desserts and drinks. Our family rounds out the meal by supplying the sides, which, in my opinion, are often the tastiest items on the menu, but also the most work.
In an effort to keep things simple, I’m turning to roasted strawberries to serve as the highlight of my dessert menu. I’ve yet to decide if they’re going to grace the top of homemade sundaes, mixed into a mess or combined with biscuits and whipped cream to make shortcakes. Regardless of how I serve them, I’m certain they’ll be the talk of the table.
