Ron and I normally do not cook brisket at home, but we happened to have one in our freezer. I wanted to do something boozy and salty- total comfort food. I used our slow cooker to create the deliciousness in the photo below. The onion flavors with the flavors from the brandy and beer were fantastic. We served this over creamy mashed potatoes so all of the juices could be soaked up.
Kellen turned his little nose up at the brisket and mashed potatoes (his loss), but loved the green beans. Kellen has his canines, top and bottom molars come in right now which has cause him to be pretty finicky on his meals. I looked into his mouth yesterday and I can see bits of all the teeth. I feel so bad for him because I imagine it to be very painful, especially coming in so quickly, and can imagine eating would cause discomfort.
Wisconsin had a little snow over the past few days! All I have to say to that is GO AWAY. I suppose it is par for the course living here, but I am ready for spring.
