Yup, here is the edition you've been waiting for…be prepared to laugh, cry, applaud, and DROOL!!!
Here is my success with Beans and Cornbread…
Here's the drama…
to say I was intimidated was an understatement.
But i forged ahead…
1st mistake – I only bought one fryer chicken so I cut the batter recipe in half…WRONG!!
Second mistake, I didn't cover the chicken all over with the batter, so it was pretty dismal.
The recipe called to fry the chicken and then bake it to finish cooking it. Apparently the frying didn't work well enough…because two hours later, the chicken wasn't done!!
So my dear mom said not to give up, but at this point I'm thinking I don't have to be great at everything!!! 🙂
So here's the victory…the redemption…
I followed this recipe to the TEE…
marinating for two days!!
if you follow me on Twitter or your my FB friend, you know how hard I worked for this brisket!! We had a little mini birthday party for my mom last Friday night and this was my present (for me!!) for her, too!!
now for the after pics…(do you have your drool cloth handy???)
just to put it in perspective…the brisket was better than this coffee, coffee, buzz buzz buzz Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream!! (but this was pretty awesome, too!!)
Happy Happy Tasty Tuesday!!
