Mayuri of Mayuri's Jikoni is hosting today and asked us to share any meal that we serve up in a bowl.  Let's see what everyone brought to the table..........

Taco Bowl

I had smoked a brisket to serve up for my husband's family reunion follow up that we hosted at our home.  As it turned out, we had tons of leftovers from the first day that I served up instead.  That left me with about 10 lbs of shredded beef to use up.

I used some for BBQ Beef Sandwiches and Hot Beef Sandwiches.   I put some in the freezer to use for Beef Pot Pie and I brought the rest along with my slow cooker to the cottage we rented for a week.

I made the sauce, mixed in the beef and put it into the slow cooker on low until Jessica, Julien and Mel arrived.   Then it was just a matter of warming the rice and beans and putting the bowls together when they were ready for dinner.  Life doesn't get much easier than that, leaving me plenty of time to enjoy my vacation.
