make a nice lasagna or spaghetti.........you really can't mess that up and it's comfort food and then a nice salad and a veggie on the side......sourdough bread would be great....don't know what your budget is though.........these days when someone cooks ....you're considered a hero and have some fairly decent wine on the side.......best wishes.....when is dinner?

out of curiosity just what is corned beef? never had it........

expatty, you've never had corned beef? saints preserve us!


it's a piece of beef brisket that is pickled in brine with herbs.

the term "corned" comes from the old english way of preserving meat. you would pack the meat in "corns" of salt.

i've had real "corned" beef, and it's kinda nasty. it's greyish, and very very salty. i prefer the pink, pickled kind.

It is beef (usually a brisket) that has been brined. The word "corned" refers to the use of the word as it applies to small particles, such as salt.

Which also means you have never eaten a Rueben sandwich.. One of the finest sandwiches to grace any table.

Corned beef, swiss cheese, sauerkraut on rye bread, then grilled. Often served with thousand Island dressing.. I prefer it without.

How about spaghetti with homemade sauce:



Here's what you'll need:

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes (optional)
1 (28 ounce) can of crushed tomtoes
1 (15 ounce) can of tomato sauce
1 (6 ounce) can of tomato paste
1/2 cup of water
1 tablespoon of sugar
11/2 teaspoon of dried basil
1/2 teaspoon of fennel seeds
1 teaspoon of Italian Seasoning
1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
2 tablespoons of dried parsley
1 pound of spaghetti, cooked according to package directions


Here's what you need to do:


In a large Dutch Oven, brown the ground beef until well browned. Add the onion, garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook until onions turn clear.

Add the crushed tomatoes, sauce, paste, water, and sugar.

Mix well.

Add Basil, Fennel Seeds, Italian Seasoning, Salt, Pepper and Parsley.

Stir well. Cover and cook for at least 45 minutes but if you have the time, cook it for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, it will be even better.
