The Happiness Project: Brisket

Photobucket


My sister will soon stop being a Texan and will become a Tennessean - if that's a word. I am very happy because she will be just a 10 hour drive away. And that means that I can go to her house for every holiday we can get together and visit more often. Let's just hope that the Fort Campbell community makes something as wonderful as El Paso's Claude's Barbeque Brisket Marinade Sauce.
I'm going to miss Claude's.
For more happiness, go here.

P.S. Thank-you for the birthday gift, Red. The chocolate bar has already beendonated to those less fortunate eaten.

Well, you already know how I feel about TN - so it's a good thing!

This old Tennessean is very happy to hear this! And believe me, the food is much better in Tennessee;)

Hey, Tennessee touches North Carolina!

Maybe Claude's can be ordered online :)

No matter. Yippee to your sister's being closer!

How nice to have your sister closer by!

Aging Mommy said...

Nice to have your sister close by - all our family are in England and we miss them! I also miss lots of strange things like Stem Ginger Cookies, Thornton's Toffee and much more so anyone who comes to visit knows to bring plenty of supplies of the things I crave!

Being close to family is so much nicer. My parents lived in Tennessee for 14 years in the Nashville area.

Those Texans know a thing ot two about brisket!! But I think she will be safely eating in TN as well.
Congrats on her getting closer to you.

One of these days I'm gonna go trapsing through Tennessee to see what the hoopla is all about. I'm still trying to figure out Texas!
Pass the salsa.

OK, my Texan back's up a bit - c'mon folks, don't knock the Lone Star. That said, there's good sauce in TN. And if I had a sister, I think I'd probably do whatever it took to be geographically closer to her -- you know, so we could eat stuff smothered in good sauce together more often. And if yoy're really jonesin' for some Claudes, just let me know...I'm happy to help you out. We're nice like that down here;D

i live in nashville...better start ordering your favorite sauce online! there are a few really good texas bbq places around here, but hard to find. ft campbell might be even more scattered in the true bbq places. most places are memphis bbq, which is pork and vinegar based. not quite the same at ALL.

don't get me wrong--there are many good food places here. just not much authentic texas bbq.

i'm glad she's moving so close by! it's a lovely place to live, i certainly love it here!
