We had the crew for Vernon’s birthday party today… Vernon woke up at four a.m. to stick a brisket in the smoker. The brisket was from some of Brandon and Megan’s grass fed beef. Wow, was it excellent! I just threw some potatoes in the oven, and had a corn and bean salad that included some black eyed peas for good luck.
I also made Vernon’s standard cake request… German Chocolate cake. You seriously can’t go wrong with German Chocolate cake!
After a week of being older than Vernon, I’m glad he caught up to me! Those seven days of “robbing the cradle” are stressful. I hope your holidays were fun.. the next few days will include some crafts, a countdown from last year’s posts… and, hopefully, a giveaway.
I didn’t make any resolutions, but I am hoping to mix it up a bit more here on the blog. My blogoversary will be coming up soon. Twelve years! Twelve years of blogging… yeah, it’s time for something new. Stay tuned.Find me here!
