My friend, Colleen, is known far and wide for her famous brisket.
I drool when she tells me she is making a brisket.
Her family risks life and limb to grab a piece before it is served.
She made one last week.
Guess who it was for?
I couldn't wait to dig in and savor each bite!
Not only did she send me the brisket,
but a fruit salad with my favorite - blackberries,
the buns, provel cheese,
and a yummy rice casserole!

As I was heating the brisket last night
people started coming over.
What? You're hungry?
That smell? I don't know what you're talking about.

Okay. I had to share, but nobody got to eat anything
until I made this perfect little plate for me
and took a photo of it.

My tribute to Colleen.
Queen of Brisket (and many other things).

Thank you, dear friend.
We enjoyed every single bite.
