Still bored, but what the hell

Tonight's Menu

  • oven-braised beef brisket
  • dinner rolls (from frozen dough)
  • green salad with carrots from the garden
Okay, yeah. I am still bored over here. Feeling very uninspired, food-wise. Not making anything remotely exciting. But I feel guilty about not posting for so long, so here! A post! A really boring post!

The brisket was rubbed with the usual spices -- brown sugar, dried oregano, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, dry mustard, salt and pepper -- then stuck in a pan with some beer, tightly covered, and cooked fat-side-up at 375 degrees F for two hours owing to the fact that I totally forgot to put it in the oven at 2:00 like I meant to. It was still fairly tender. I think cutting it REALLY thin after it had rested helped a lot with that, though.

The rolls were those little frozen dough balls, thawed and baked. Easy.

I hope to cook something interesting soon.

Oooh! A new dinner post! The kids must have been making a lot of their own damn dinners for the past few weeks:-)

I hate discovering that I put something in the oven for three hours on low, only to discover that "off" is just a little too low....
