>>Merriam Webster On-line ( gives a near meaning of 'plank' that >>apply:plank (verb):2 : SET DOWN 1, 2 -- usually used with down3 : to cook and >>serve on a board <planked salmon> <planked steak>I've always seen the word >>'trivet' used, but I have no doubt that
regional differences exist. (I grew up on the West Coast of the US FWIW.)Gregory Gadow<< I can honestly say that I've never heard plank OR trivet, so I had no idea what anyone was really talking about until someone mentioned potholder. I've live in the West US all my life, too... but I guess there are a lot more differences in the West than in others because it's still a lot newer, and there is a lot of people from different places moving here... anyways....
