A little piece of TEXAS!

We miss Texas-we have no problems admitting it, but just when we think we have a grasp on reality (living in Utah)...our friends in Austin remind us of what we left.....this week it was Texas BBQ! Kwang - thank you thank you thank you for the lovely package. The UPS man had a HUGE grin in his face when he dropped off our large box of SALT LICK BBQ! The box contained a brisket, sausage and ribs - all fully cooked, they just needed to be heated up. Oh and of course Salt Lick BBQ sauce! We decided to freeze the ribs and sausage for now....we can't devour all this Texas goodness in one sitting! The brisket has sat in our fridge for a couple of days now...waiting, just waiting for us to heat it up and serve it Texas style. Today was the truly was an afternoon event!

If you come visit us from Austin - you MUST bring some of this with excuses - THEY SELL IT IN THE AIRPORT IN AUSTIN!

Ahhhh - lovely brisket....heating up to perfection!

All warmed up...getting sliced.


Keeping with the Texas spirit - we cooked up some other goodies, all recipes from our friends in Texas. The menu included Mom Pinchot's homemade macaroni and cheese (thanks Pinzon family!) and Mango Margarita Pie (thanks Bigbee's!).

Zachary decided to have brisket shark for dinner. He can't seem to get enough of this shark.

There were four of us eating dinner and I don't even think we polished off 1/4 of this brisket. Brisket sandwiches for lunch all week - wahoo!!!!!
