There Goes Another One

Why is it when you're trying to get ready to go on vacation, that everyone gets sick? I had to take another child to the doctor today. That wasn't in my plans at all. And no, they aren't even sick with the same thing. Jack's got the beginnings of strep or the flu, they're not sure which it is yet. The crazy thing is that this happens every single time. I don't think we've ever gone on vacation that I didn't end up with someone at the doctor the week before.

Don't think I've lost my mind (yet). The menu for last night was for london broil and that's what we had. I just used the recipe below and substituted london broil for the brisket. It smelled so good cooking we could hardly stand it, and it was very tender. It was a nice change to the usual way we cook it.

Home-Style Beef Brisket

1 env. onion soup mix
3/4 c. water
1.2 c. ketchup
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. black pepper
3 lb. boneless brisket (or london broil)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In 13x9 pan, add soup mix blended with water, ketchup, garlic powder, parsley, and pepper. Add meat and turn to coat. Loosely cover with aluminum foil and bake 3 hours. Serves 8

Here's a picture of one of my crepe myrtle trees. We have several. The pink ones aren't blooming yet. The white ones are full of blooms though. I've got a different garden picture to share with you for the rest of the week.

Stay well!

It's not just you. I can remember when mine were little the same thing would happen. Don't worry, usually they act like nothing is wrong with them once you are actually at your destination.
Now that life has slowed down a little bit for me, I am going to do more cooking. I will be trying more of these recipes. They all sound delicious.

Thanks for the reminder. I'm glad things are slowing down for you. Have fun cooking, and fixing your new booth. You'll have to share some pictures and tell everyone where to find it.
