This week is National Volunteer Week and two of our employees have been Blogging For A Cause, writing about charitable causes that are near and dear to us. Julia Carcamo from Casinos, Brands and More, and Elissa Plastino from Life, Work & All Things in Between, are featuring a different organization/event every day, and today the spotlight is on HavenHouse St. Louis.
HavenHouse has an AMAZING cook, Miss Georgia, who has been with them for 36 years, and whose cooking brings smiles to the faces of medical patients and their families every single day. Georgia’s homestyle meals are comforting and families love what she prepares. So, we thought that it would be a great fit for us to showcase a recipe from her kitchen.
A favorite meal of families, staff and volunteers, is her brisket. While there isn’t an actual recipe, Miss Georgia tells us what ingredients she uses and steps she follows when making this dish. Warning: cooking brisket is an art and requires some practice so if you try this, perfection may not come on the first try but each attempt will be delicious!
Miss Georgia’s Brisket
