Brett's birthday dinner

All my grandchildren (and children and their spouses, when possible) get to order what they want for their birthday meal at my house.  Thanks to our purchase of a motorcycle, which has kept us on the road recently, Brett's meal is a couple of weeks late.  But this evening, he gets his special dinner.

He ordered barbecued brisket (all done except the barbecue part).  Oreo Dessert  (done).  Home-made dinner rolls (now rising for the first time) and broccoli-and-rice casserole (the ingredients are laid out and waiting).

I added potato salad to the menu, because it goes so well with anything barbecued, and pineapple-upside-down cake, so Brett hopefully will have more Oreo Dessert for himself.

Yeah, there's lots of sugar and starch there.  That's life.

That all sounds very good.  I have a broccoli and rice casserole receipe and it doesn't go like that at all.  I should share mine but it isn't really mine.

Oh yummmm Mosie!  Every single thing sounds delicious!  Thanks for highlighting the recipes!

Happy Belated Birthday to Brett!  Hope he enjoys that Oreo Cake!  Personally, I would rather eat the pineapple upside down cake! Yumm

Mmmmm.... sugar & starch <picture drool here> Thank goodness I have a pretty high metabolism, or I would weigh about 2 tons! Everything sounds scrumptious!

It all sounds delicious !  Happy Birthday to Brett!  And lucky all the rest of you because you all get to eat the good food too!  I used to do that for my family and still do every now and then, when they come home I try and fix their favorites.  All very sweet and starchy too!  'On Ya' - ma
