Dinner tonight - St. Patty's Day 2006

I am making corned beef for the first time. Since I won't be home till much later I did it in the Crock Pot. I put the beef in with one bottle of beer and the spice packet. I throw in quartered red potaotes and put the heat on low. When i get home I will pull the meat out to rest and at that time I will throw the cabbage in. I am really looking forward to this meal and a couple of Guiness to wash it all down.

Corned beef and cabbage here, too, with boiled red taters. I'm also using my crockpot.

Happy St. Patty's Day to everyone!

Happy St. Patricks Day everyone!
Since today is Fri. (lent), we're having leftover polenta with wild mushroom sauce, and maybe sauted spinach with garlic.
First year I didn't make corned beef & cabbage. Probably tomorrow night.

We're having beef vegtable soup (I'm defrosting it right now). I have never made corned beef but after reading this thread I'm craving a rueben for lunch - LOL.

I want a reuben too! Thats one thing you all can do with your leftover corned beef, or make some red flannel hash.

So I have my own two(Kenyan-Irish) two Suisse-Colombian kids and two Swedish-British kids. My best bet is pasta tonight.Click image for larger version

It it's not too late by the time I arrive at my hotel, I do plan on going to some Irish Pub somewhere in Boston to celebrate my DH's family.

No cooking for me tonight, but would love to tell all of you Happy St. Patty's Day.

Susie (I may not be officially Irish, but do green eyes help?)
