I think I will order in Chinese - it isn't like St. Patrick's Day food but that is what I am in the mood for.

golly, if my dh called me and asked if I'd start the cnb&c for todays meal and then he planned on finishing it when he got home, I'd fall over in a faint

I don't celebate St. Patrick's Day, for the same reason I don't celebrate Cinco de Mayo or Bastille day.

My son and his wife invited themselves over for dinner, so I am making Grandma LoVullo's sauce, rotini, meat balls, Italian sausage, and apple pie for dessert.

caine, i've tried, but i can't seem to draw parallels as to why you wouldn't celebrate those specific days. a patron saint's day, a secondary military battle conmemoration, and a national holiday based the beginning of a revolt? que es el dealio?


lefse, lol, the irish are far more clever than most people realize.

how much finishing up is there in a one pot boiled dinner? all i had to do was remove it from the pot, slice, and serve. but it does appear like i helped by suggesting it.

oh, and jam some in my boy's pie hole as i chase him around the house during dinner. that's the tough part. he doesn't sit long for anything, let alone dinner.

gotta give dw credit; one of the best corned beef, cabbage and spud dinners i've ever eaten. we had a cook's brand corned beef. it has a few less grams of fat per serving. ten as opposed to 13 to 20 as i've seen on other packages. but it was still moist enough with that marbled taste. i almost cried when dw suggested we "cut off all that fat before slicing".

oh listen Bucky, my husband is 100% Irish. He can build and design Rockets, so I know how industrious and clever my Irish man can be, but ask him to take a slab of meat out and somehow finish it off, oh no, that's beyond his genius

I made a traditional corned beef for myself (I'll enjoy the leftovers in Reuben sandwiches or with morning eggs this coming week) & a turkey kielbasa for my husband; we both enjoyed the same sides - whole-grain mustard & horseradish (of course); sliced green cabbage sauteed in an obscene amount of butter, salt, & freshly ground black pepper; sugar-glazed turnips & baby carrots; & plain boiled & buttered halved baby white potatoes.

I am not Irish, I am not Mexican, and I am not French. I also don't celebrate Columbus Day, because I am not Spanish.

I do, however, celebrate the Lunar New Year, because I am looney!
