I tackled the brisket today. The meat was vacuumed sealed so there was no way to tell just how much fat was on it. Not too bad.I cut about 1/3 rd.off to freeze. The rest just did fit in my super large crock pot. The recipe called for 1 cup of brandy, added to the caramelized onions and cooked for a minute. It really tasted good. Now that the meat has cooked for 8 hours on low, I can’t taste the brandy at all. Maybe I’ll add a little when I skim the fat later. I had a hard time getting the meat out of the crock pot. It was so tender that it was falling apart. Now I can relax, the first step of cooking is almost done. My son is making chicken soup and matzoh balls. As far as I’m concerned,after I make charotzi we can stop cooking. All my dietary needs will have been met.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
