On the eve of Saint Patrick's Day, in order to miss the crazy crowds drunk on green beer (are we officially old!?), our friend kindly opted to prepare us a delicious, nay splendid, Irish-American boiled dinner.
This was not a throw-together dinner; this was cooked on the stove all day with loving care gooooood.
Corned beef, gently and thoughtfully seasoned along with boiled cabbage, carrots, new potatoes and turnips and a wonderful, crumbly, dense as-it-should-be Irish Soda Bread.
The luck of the Irish to ya!
