Learned to let go
Chad is letting his membership at Milwaukee Makerspace go. He likes the community but the space itself isn’t matching up with what he’s doing. And then, on Saturday we celebrated our friend Dave’s 55th birthday at a party held by his family. He’s fighting stage four lung cancer so the event was bittersweet for all.
Tried to perfect a brisket recipe
We’ve been trying to come up with a plan to eat better more consistently and Chad’s eating a little more paleo so he thought he’d give an Instant Pot recipe for brisket. The recipe took waaaay longer than we thought. So we ended up calling for pizza.
