Delicious Dinner

Tonight we had a delicious dinner. I made homemade BBQ sauce for our slow-cooked beef brisket. Mom made sweet potato fries that were baked in the oven with olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, and cayenne pepper. They came out crispy and full of flavor. We also made a sangria-type lemonade. We used prepared lemonade and added slices of fresh, juicy fruit including peaches, apples, grapes, and strawberries. We let it sit in the fridge for a while before dinner and it came out nicely marinated. We all used our forks to eat the leftover fruit in the bottoms of our glasses for dessert! Grace loved every bit of it, too.

After we finished eating, Todd and dad took Grace to the local pond to go fishing. Mom and I propped our feet up and turned on Fox News.

Hopefully between the two of them they can keep Grace from jumping in the pond!
