The party

Yes, i threw a party for my birthday,
no i do not have pictures, but others may surface.

The Menu -
24 hour slow smoked brisket - This was incredible, moist and tender and delicious
A sauce to go along with it - i call it a BBQ sauce.  All my BBQ sauce are made from the meat drippings and fruit.  This time i used apples, but my favorite is mango.
Butter beans - Lima beans cooked in a butter sauce
macaroni and cheese - there were 2 kinds, but the adult version (with bacon and crisped ham) did not reheat so well.  The other was perfect.
Salmon - no time to grill, but i used the same orange juice and zest, maple syrup, paprika and smoked salt that i always use and reduced the marinade to make a sauce.
Corn bread - with cheese and peppers and pepitas (pumpkin seeds).
i was going to have some zucchini, but it froze and was not good.
The people who came brought dessert, but it was too much dessert!
we all had lots of fun.
Oh, the numbers of people? 23!
What a good night
