family feature: barbara's brisket







next up on my family feature list is my lovely mother-in-law barbara draffin! since i married into a true southern family, i knew i had better step up my cooking game and learn some good southern dishes. brisket is on the menu everywhere in tennessee or the south in general and barbara's brisket recipe is a wonderful dish. after being snowed in all weekend here at home, you already know cooking and baking was at the top of my list. on saturday evening we all decided to make dinner and go see a movie since we hadn't left the house since thursday. 

the dinner menu consisted of barbara's brisket, potatoes, pineapple casserole, and salad. we had a great dinner and movie, not to mention a wonderful weekend snowed in at home. it was a much needed weekend for me to relax since traveling so much lately.
