Tonight we had dinner at my parents' house to celebrate my nephew's Confirmation! My mother made a family favorite, beef brisket along with mashed potatoes, broccoli, baked acorn squash, salad and biscuits. The brisket slow roasts which makes it so tender you can cut it with a butter knife! The mashed potatoes were simply potatoes, milk, butter and salt. The acorn squash were halved and placed flesh side down on a baking sheet. Then it was baked for 40 minutes at 375*. After the time is up, check them by pressing on them. If your finger makes an indentation, they are done. If not, continue cooking for another ten minutes. The recipe for the brisket is pictured below. My mother cut it out of a magazine several years go. It feeds 12 so there were plenty of leftovers!
