I'm making colcannon to go with my rib eye. Apple bread pudding with a whiskey sauce for dessert.

I'm Irish, and I refuse to perpetuate the myth of Irish corned beef and cabbage by eating New England boiled dinner, on St. Patrick's Day or otherwise. There will also be no green dessert.

Since both corned beef and cabbages have been on sale this week, I think I'll make corned beef sandwiches and coleslaw later in the week. But no American corned beef for me on an Irish holiday!

i bought a corned beef at market yesterday. got for just over three dollars. to good to pass up. got up to late to put in crockpot for dinner. going to dr. and don't want to leave it cooking while i am gone. they had no green cabbage, can you believe it. so bought purple, hoping that will work. guess will cook tomorrow. just looked at beef, was only 2.86 dollars.

tonight left over pork ribs and a huge spinach salad. that should do it. have milk chocolate brownies for dessert. baked em yesterday. super good.

Ok by me, Silversage, but my grandparents, both born in County Mayo Ireland, had corned beef and cabbage on St. Paddy's day, and so I do too.
Makes it plenty authentic for me.
It's sure smelling good in the house.
Happy St Patrick's day to all....no matter what you eat today.

Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day ... so dinner tonight will be corned beef and cabbage, with potatoes and carrots and my GF's recipe for Irish soda bread.

Erin Go Bragh!

Babe, it's likely the "point" cut that you got for that great price. I sometimes buy a point at this time of year, and freeze it for later on. The point is so fatty that after it's been cooked (and some of the fat removed), it makes the best corned beef hash in the world!

So....

I am guessing...

No green soda bread either?

Nope! And no green beer! (Maybe a little Jameson's, though).
