(sorry for inconsistent usage of apostrophes... my kid spilled water on my keyboard. :( ).

    Yeah, her description of it tasting like beef flavored jello made me decide to pass.

    I corned my first beef brisket this week. After 8 days of marinating in brine and pickling spices, I cooked 4 lbs of it off today in a slow cooker. 1.5 hours on High and 3 hours on Low. When cooking I added a tbs of pickling spices and put water about an inch above the brisket. The result




    Taste is through the f'in roof.

    I love this thread for many reasons. More for the stuff people make at home than for the pictures of restaurant plates, but those are very nice as well and between the jealousy and inspiration they provoke, I'm always glad to find them here. What's most important to me is what tasty food brings to the plate when getting together with friends and family, and for all to enjoy. Keep posting your pictures!!!

    i went to oktoberfest in the old world village of HB on sunday. my daughter watched the dachsund races while i had a pretzel, bratwurst and strudel with a spaten oktoberfest. it was better tasting than i expected so i didn't take a pic until a few chomps in...




    then tonight, i made a purple and new potato pizza with homemade pesto, smashed garlic and sauteed cremini mushrooms.

    Love these pics. I don't live in Surf City, I mean Huntington Beach, lol, but very close to it, and it's become my second home from home, and almost my favorite beach, which is weird for me to say, lol, because I am from Santa Monica and there is a rivalry between L.A County beaches and O.C beaches. lol.

    But anyhow, I did coincidentally happen to hang our in HB, this weekend too, and Oktoberfest stuff was happening. The dolphin had a pretzel and some beer. I would post a picture, lol, but I don't post pictures of me here, haha, I am shy. I think HB is still going to do another at least another round of Oktoberfest this weekend and good food will be had.

    haha, i wonder if the dolphin was in my presence then? there were a ton of people there for the dog races and then it totally petered out just a bit before we left at 5pm. perfect day to bring a kid. i love living here but sometimes the worry that bros will be out in full force at either the beach or wherever else there is booze here in town turns me off. i avoid the beach during peak times and i'm not sure if the bros come out to HB's oktoberfest or if they avoid it all together since it's so small, but i was pleasantly surprised to find that sundays are most assuredly laid back. i was just racing through town and down PCH today... with everyone back in school and work, it feels nice to have the HB i know back from the tourists and partiers.
    anyway, i've lived here for 9 yrs now and this was the first time i found the time to go to oktoberfest. i hope to visit again next year and have the pretzel and beer again also. those were my favorites. probably try that german potato salad, too...

    btw, i didn't know that there was any sort of rivalry between LA and OC beaches. haha. i'm originally from ventura county so i usually went to malibu, carp or santa barbara. they're kind of all the same to me... HB's just more livable since i'm not a millionaire and it's a decently large enough city to keep my options open. one of my favorite parts about it is that they've preserved some of their old buildings so the post office i go to downtown is a building from 1935 and the building i take my daughter to swim class in was built in 1931. i thought you lived in pomona? i guess dolphins feel more at home closer to the sea, lol. does the dolphin not want to reveal exactly which city near HB he lives in now? hahaha.

    (god, sorry if any of that sounded disjointed. i'm pretty freaking tired but i was just in the middle of researching something important. now i'm done and can finally konk out.)

    so it was my mother-in-law's birthday, she passed away two and a half weeks ago... on grandparents day with the family and my daughter around her... but she would've been 70. i remember she once mailed me home made madeleines even though she lived just an hour away in carlsbad. they were delicious and i'd never had anyone mail me home baked goods before. so i made some myself today as a sort of remembrance.



    i'm bringing a dozen down tomorrow for when i visit my father in law, sister in law and her kids.
