Sunday glorious sunday
34 degrees and my only day off this week- yes, that's me, a G & T and the Sunday newpapers- all floating happily in our little pool.
Don't worry, lunch is looking after itself, a voluptuous little brisket that's been slow roasting for the past 4 hours- in the pleasant company of some chunky potatoes for that last hour.
What can I say, all that bobbing around and reading gives a girl an appetite.
I stuffed the brisket with lemon thyme and garlic, browned it nicely, added 1/2 cup wine, 1/2 cup coke, a few tomatoes from the garden and an onion, covered it with foil, put the lid on and cooked for 4 hours on 160 degrees......meltingly tender with a gravy to remember.
Another day, another dollar.... Bring it on........just don't mess with my Sundays.
