March 17, 2011 - What is your St. Patrick's Day Dinner?
 
I am still not 100% sure yet. I am thinking bangers and mash (grilled sausages and mashed potatoes).

What about everyone else?

Well, since I am Irish and LOVE corned beef, that's what we're having. I put the beef on to cook this morning and the house is already smelling awfully good. The taters are peeled and in cold water waitin' to be cooked for mashed and the cabbage has been prepped for its bath with the corned beef. Have most of a loaf of homemade French bread and some sweet butter to go along with and some amber bock chilling. Chocolate-zucchini cake for dessert, if we have room.

Wow and delicious!!!! I had thought about a Shepherd's pie but it is so nice out today that I think grilling is in order and the oven can stay off.

Also corned beef, potatoes and veggies. I have a nice loaf of bakery seeded rye, butter and several types of mustard waiting.

I'm not a lick Irish and my choices are limited to what's in freezer and pantry (had too many bills due the first of the month and have another week before payday). Therefore, we'll be having chicken in mushroom sauce, stuffing and salads.

While I am not Irish, I am doing a traditional New England Boiled Dinner. Corned beef and cabbage with potatoes, carrots and onions.

CRAP! I forgot to buy the cabbage! See you later.

I can understand, Dave. I lived in the Maryland/DC area for over 30 years before moving here and I recall how beautiful some of the early spring days can be there. I spent many hours out on our huge deck.

I sprinkled some chicken thighs with ranch seasoning and put them in the slow cooker with a little chicken stock. I'll whip up an alfredo type sauce with mushrooms and garlic and add that in a few hours or so. Served over pasta.

I have the corned beef in the crock pot.

The bangers and mash sounds nice... hmmm...

Spring in definitely here! And I'm home early from work so that makes it even better.

I'm off to Giant to see if they still sell HP Brown sauce for the bangers. :smile:
