looking for new sides ideas...

Well, since Im on vacation this week, I figured Id do a family dinner Sunday. Gonna do a brisket. Im looking for something new to serve with it, Im tired of the standard slaw/twice baked/beans sides. I know we have a bunch of new folks here. Lets hear some fresh ideas !

And Im too dang lazy to sift through the sides section here again, so lets not even go there !

Re: looking for new sides ideas...

With it being 6 ears of corn, I'd guess between 6 - 8.

Re: looking for new sides ideas...

Look up Susan Chupp's Sphagetti Salad in the recipe section. That be the cats meow. Cheap too. It has MSG so it aint applicable to any girly men who get imaginary headaches or menstrual cramps from MSG. A billion chinamen eat several tons of it each year and they aint dead yet.
