Brisket, Mr. Rico!

I took Katie out for lunch and then grocery shopping, which meant a trip to Sam's Club and then to Mariano's.

There were a large number of things that I had planned to buy at Sam's Club today. Brisket was not on the list. And then I saw the sign advertising brisket for $3.28 / lb. In the cooler were two *ginormous* vacuum-packed briskets labeled USDA Prime with expiration dates in the next week. Well, I suppose that explained the $3.28 / lb price, although how they came to *be* at Sam's Club in the first place is a bit of a mystery, as that's not normally the grade of meat they carry.

I called Gretchen to confirm that it would be ok if I brought this 13 pound behemoth of a brisket home and she agreed that it would be fine. So tonight, we had stew, as planned.

Tomorrow, we will have brisket.

(And for several more meals after that, but let's just worry about tomorrow for now...)
