The Days Are Getting Longer....
Did Y'all have a Kick Ass Week-End?
Yesterday I had to go to Walmarks to get a vacuum cleaner belt.
Now I usually do my grocery shopping at Kroger, but this is a Super Walmarks and I aimlessly wandered to the grocery section there. As I was perusing the meats, I noticed that corned beef briskets were 2.14 a pound. At Kroger they were 3.59 a pound marked down from 3.99!!
I thought about how good a Corned Beef/Swiss on Rye bread sandwich would taste for my lunch on Monday, and I bought TWO!
This seems like a lot of meat, but believe me they really shrink when they cook down. So I am cooking one brisket very slowly in the oven with a honey/mustard glaze. And I'm making a boiled dinner with the other one. After boiling the other brisket for about 3 hours, I added a cabbage head, about 10 nice sized carrots, and a Rutabaga! My grandmother never made vegetable soup without adding a "beggie" as she called them. If you have ever been fortunate enough to have a Michigan Upper Peninsula taste treat supreme known as a Pastie, the main underlying flavor of that little regional treasure is the rutabaga.
The smell permeating thru my house know is driving me CRAZY!!!
Where in the WORLD is G-Man's Fu-Manchu?
Pretty clean-cut eh?
Next thing ya know I'll lose about 80 pounds and get Lyposuction!!
Have a Great Week....And Happy Martin Luther King Day.
It's no Holiday for me!
