My grandmother used to make cake with pistachio pudding. Only she'd put the pudding between 2 layers of cake and use green food coloring for the icing.

There were several thread related to this so I just picked one. I generally don't do anything for St. Patrick's Day, but I figured since I have an exchange student here I should show him what most Westerners do for it. My family has never had the traditional St. Patty's meal of corned beef and cabbage, so I have no clue how to cook it. I couldn't find a thread with any instructions, so help me out here, what do I do? How do I cook the beef/cabbage/potatoes? What else is good with it?

You can cook all of that in a slow cooker if you have one.
Put it all in and put enough water in to cover everything.
Cook on low 8-10 hours. That's how I do it anyway.
And don't forget a good crusty bread to go along
with it.

This link might help you out a little.

Drink a few Guinness and the ideas will come to you. Become creative.
If you are serving to family and friends I would make the traditional fare, however, add some new additions.
My dad loves to smash his peas into his mashed potatoes..it looks perfect for St. Pat's.

I would simmer frozen peas, add some sauteed shallots, salt, pepper and puree.
Then fold it into the mashed potatoes.
It's worth a try???

After years of making the traditional boring "boiled" corned beef & cabbage dinner (always adding in turkey kielbasa for non-meat-eating husband), I finally decided to heck with tradition & for the past several years have a made a meal that's actually enjoyable for both of us.

Regular boiled corned beef (& turkey kielbasa for the husband) along with butter-sauteed sliced cabbage & oven-roasted root vegetables (carrots, potatoes, turnips, onions, & garlic). MUCH nicer, in my opinion. And plenty of Guinness, of course.

And of course I've already laid in the fixings for those great Reuben sandwiches (sauerkraut, seeded rye bread, swiss cheese, Thousand Island dressing. . . .).

Thanks! That was exactly what I needed! (Except the Guinness. lol. I don't actually drink alcohol. Never have, never will).

I think I'll use a combination of these ideas, and I'll definitely use my slow cooker.

I think I'm just going to go green and make risotto with asparagus, peas, lemon and thyme, along with some sort of grilled fish.
