Meal Time - Friday October 14

Same old stuff for breakfast and lunch, but dinner - now that's a different story. I love Fridays at my home! Everyone's here working on flowers so I cook for everyone. If you don't know it by now I love to cook! It is something that brings me much joy and I love to cook for others.

So, here's what I had today:

Breakfast - oatmeal and a yogurt
Lunch - Smartones mini burgers and edamame
Snack - hot dog from SAMS Club. I love their hot dogs!

Drum roll please - Dinner - BBQ sliders with sweet potato fries and steamed broccoli. I prepared a trimmed brisket in the slow cooker last night with some onions and BBQ sauce. Lisa put it on this morning and we let it cook for about 9 hours or so. Then I took it out and let it rest for a few minutes and cut the remaining fat off and pulled it. Strained the onions out of the liquid and skimmed the fat off the top. Then I whisked in some brown sugar and flour to thicken and sweeten up the sauce. Added the onions and beef back in and let it cook for about another 45 minutes or so. It was delicious!!! Here's a pic of the finished plate.
