Corned beef with potatoes and carrots. May pick up some soda bread if they aren't sold out when I go.

We're having corned beef and cabbage and potatoes, too. I'm also planning to try Michael Chiarello's Guinness and Onion Soup with Irish Cheddar Crouton

Corned Beef, Cabbage, Potatoes, Turnips, Carrots, Seeded Rye Bread. I know that is not Irish, but I don't like Irish Soda Bread. Dessert, Oh, that would be a Beer (after work, of-course!).

Thanks Katie....I had an email from my friend Anne in Co. Donegal this morning...she wanted the recipe for Colcannon!!!

We usually have ham, cabbage, mashed potatoes and gravy, but this lent I am abstaining all sorts of meat except fish, So I cooked an Irish brunch for dinner. Irish sausages, black and white pudding, bacon, fried egg, mushrooms,baked beans, toast and a nice cuppa. They loved it. .I had a bouillabaisse. It was lovely.

Instead of boiling the cabbage, I cut it in a large dice, added 4 sliced leeks,a little chopped parsley and sauted the whole thing in butter,added some cream, sugar and mustard. Have corned beef ready to go, along with some baked potatoes,sauted carrots with brown sugar and butter. Made some home made biscuits and chocolate pies..

we had our choice of leftovers, and everybody chose lasagna

We went out for lunch, and I had corned beef and cabbage, green beans, mashed potatoes, pickled beets and a homemade roll...for $5.99.

I'm having a couple pieces of cold fried chicken tonight. Might eat a few baby dills with it. DH is heating his up, but if the chicken isn't greasy, and this isn't, I prefer it cold.
I've always been a little strange.

We get by with a little help from our friends
