I just put my corned beef brisket on the smoker to make it into pastrami. I'll pick up some rye bread and Swiss cheese later (already have the kraut and dressing) and make sandwiches for dinner. Maybe some boiled potatoes and butter, too.

Doing prep now for traditional corned beef and cabbage, will probably start simmering around 2:00pm. It's a small piece, only 3.5lbs.

Despite my being Irish, I am making Pizza today, and not something traditionally Irish.

Ive never celebrated St Patricks day much. When I was a kid it was just a day to go to church, whether it was Sunday or not, so I associate it with the opposite of fun.

I'm with the majority - corned beef simmering, veggies ready, cabbage wedges waiting for that last minute plunge! Only I am having to do this all early as DH needs it for take-out...working tonight.

My best friend is taking me to our favourite tea house today. I think I will go for the Irish Breakfast tea! Hopefully they have their mint Nanaimo Bars for the occasion. I think my diet will forgive me just this once .

Mozzarella sticks wrapped in puff pastry with pesto dipping sauce.

Put a small tri tip (about 2 1/2 lbs) in the slow cooker with French Onion soup, garlic, Guinness & Italian seasoning. About 2 hours before the end of cooking time, I'll add Brussels sprouts, potatoes, carrots, & onions.

Mascarpone cheesecake (from the bakery) topped with fresh sliced strawberries.

Tri-tip is different (not crazy about corned beef). This will be an experiment.

Your meal sounds delish!

If I had more time, and better baking skills, I would try this Guinness chocolate cheese cake. Next time ;-) Have a lovely day.
