Lunchtime! Wha cha eatin’?
Having been injured has taught me a lil’ somethin’ somethin’ – delegation. So while I’ve been babying the foot (Merci for your concern.), I let my dames become the sous cooks. The pair caught up on Master Chef Junior recently and have been itching to learn more about cooking. While Princess Jellybean now preps the rice for the rice cooker, Princess Cupcake has now taken over salad duty.
Delegating to the baby and the tween has helped me immensely. The 10-year-old is also putting together sandwiches for us gals besides starting to make her dad’s lunch so he won’t have to stumble around half asleep in the morning.
On a funny note, this one just got mad at her little sister who does not like condiments on her bread. Princess Jellybean was told, “You are so picky.”
Uh, what has this mother been putting up for 10 years? Hello! The oldest had to change out the bread and wrap it up for future consumption.
With some of these meal preps off of my shoulders and with a slight limp that is going away bit by bit today, I whipped up this new recipe last night. We don’t eat beef too often in this house as I had gotten tired of ground beef when we first started buying groceries at Costco. When I saw that pin on Pinterest I was inspired to try more of Costco’s other meats to have better dinner menu variety.
Our home smelled so good yesterday afternoon and evening! This recipe requires some prep beforehand but it is worth it.
When I grabbed the brisket to transfer it to a bowl, it was falling apart. I kept saying to myself that the meat was gorgeous! For the sauce I blended the carrots and onions with the liquid. They thickened the sauce and filled it full of flavor. Our crew can probably get two more meals out of this 4 lb. brisket. What a deal!
