Saint Paddy's Day

March 16, 2008

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!
