Since the weather has been cooler here, I have been making heartier know, the stick-to-your-ribs kind of dinners! I found this recipe over at allyou. It looks amazing!!

Slow Cooker Sweet-and-Sour Brisket

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 hours
Yield: 6 Servings
Cost per Serving: $1.11

1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 (2 1/2 lb.) piece flat-cut brisket, trimmed
Salt and pepper

Place tomatoes, onion, garlic, raisins (if using), brown sugar and lemon juice in a slow cooker and stir to combine. Sprinkle brisket with 1 1/2 tsp. salt and season with pepper. Place brisket on tomato mixture and then spoon half of tomato mixture on meat. Cover and cook on high until meat is fork tender, 5 to 6 hours.

Transfer brisket to a cutting board, tent with foil to keep warm, and let stand for 10 minutes. Skim fat from sauce and discard; season sauce with salt and pepper. Slice brisket across grain, transfer to a serving platter and spoon some sauce over meat.

This week has been started for the teens and it has meant a new routine and more "stuff" going on. At least the weather has been cooler...that has made doing yard work and gardening alot more pleasurable! Today I plan to can green beans...yippee!! My garden is just chugging away...producing produce for me to work with despite the fact that it didn't get much rain until recently. Gotta love that little garden! :)
