This past weekend included some entertaining for family from out of town. My parents and my wife's cousins from Montreal. All were here for a surprise b'day party for my MiL (her 65th).
I decided to make a dish that I know that my parents have never had before, so I set out to make Osso Buco something that I haven't made since culinary school. I bought 11lbs of shanks, got taken to the cleaners by the bucher shop, won't go there again, but it was a necessity situation.
At the last minute, we decided to invite my wife's cousin and his family to join us for dinner as I had made plenty.
While the Osso Buco was cooking, I also smoked 2 briskets.
What about you? What did you cook this weekend?
