St. Patrick's Day Dinner, 2017

Almost dinner time on the left coast, and the corned beef dinner is nearly ready.

What was/is dinner at your house?

LOW walleye, coleslaw, asparagus and wild blueberry pie. Mom cleaned her plate and had TWO pieces of pie. Everything was sooooo good.

What with the added attraction of the bars open an hour earlier, at 7am over their normal 8am, St Paddy's parade at noon in St Paul with Mpls parade at 6, so extra long happy hours of green beer in between and anticipating more to follow throughout the evening, it's a wonder people made it to work today. The cities offer free bus/light rail rides until 3am, so there's that.

We, however, wore sensible shoes and went to a late afternoon movie.

Dinner became popcorn, a shared large diet soda and a bag of M&M's we smuggled in. I may have to have a small corn beef sammie later this evening, just for a taste test.

I never did make it to the grocery store to get a corned beef and fixin's. Life got in the way and I have so much other stuff to use up, and little freezer space. Hopefully they'll still have some in a couple of days.

Tonight's dinner was lazy, and easy peasy. A steamed artichoke again (I love them!), and a sliced mango.

What movie did you see, Whisk? I've been known to sneak in a bit more than a package of M&M's. Haha.

I haven't gotten to the store this week either, Cheryl, so no bangers and mash tonight. Arg! I should have made my mashed potato soup today! I even have Irish cheddar for it...

Himself kept reminding me all week how good my cheesy cauliflower soup tasted last time. I caved and made more. We also had tuna melts on homemade country white bread. Life is good...

Now that was the best corned beef I've ever made. I braised it in my trusty Nesco Roaster with 1/2 white wine and 1/2 water. Thanks for the tip Steve K.
I let it rest for an hr before slicing, and didn't overcook the veggies in the tasty liquid.

I used beer once and didn't like it at all!

I hunted and gathered the corned beef at the market, then turned it over to the head chef to work her magic!
Absolutely delicious

Glad you enjoyed it K! I think corned beef is so much better that way than boiling all the flavor out of it.

Since I had CB&C last night, tonight I had nacho salad. Not exactly traditional St. Paddy's fare, but I did put some green things in it - lettuce, avocados, onions, jalapeños.

I made a delicious recipe from Bon Appetit. Hoisin glazed pork chops made with homemade hoisin and pan fried slowly.
