It never even occurred to me to get a corned beef and some cabbage.
Wow, that's scary....
Give me a cheesesteak, any day!
I'm sorry. I confess I didn't even know today is St. Patrick's Day.
We go shopping today for groceries, though. Not too late to pick up a head of cabbage and a corned beef chunk. I love corned beef and cabbage.
Don't like the length of time it takes to make it, though.
Happy St. Paddy's Day everyone!
Well I was prepared! Corned Beef has been the Crockpot for a little over an hour now. I found that is the easiest way to prepare it. Funny thing is I don't care for Corned Beef. I just make it for my family.
And a mighty happy day to you as well, Laddy.
Is time for a pint o Jameson and ferr eatin' me green boogs.
My 7 yr old son woke up and asked if it was St Patty's Day ?
I had watched a minute of the NYC parade Saturday - so I wasn't sure ?
Checked calendar " Yup, it is "
He told me " I have to wear GREEN !"
He is 50% Irish.......and I have been informing him of this the last two years.
So I explained......when I couldn't find enough GREEN clothing.....that ORANGE can be
worn as well........... ( I had an ORANGE shirt handy . ).
I explained Catholic + Protestants briefly...........both - in my recent Family History.
and he stated
" Daddy, 'History - Fact Or Fiction' ( TV Show ) said St Patrick wore BLUE.....so BLUE would be proper, too."
I said, " Okay.......but don't tell the Protestants or Catholics."
On the way home this morning after breakfast we stopped at a bar for a drink. We sat at the bar and 5 people we did not know, ordered Rubens. I love a good Ruben if it is made with good, brisket, not deli sliced corned beef. Anyway, their sandwiches came out (deli-sliced) and I have never in my life seen people eat a Ruben with a knife and fork. It's a SANDWICH!! But three of them used knife and fork.
I don't remember names, but just recently one of the newly announced Dems was made fun of for asking how to eat fried chicken. A couple of years ago a politician was made fun of for eating pizza with a knife and fork.
Nov 2020 is so far away and there will be so many more fobars.
C'mon mods be reasonable, this is not a political post. Granted, it may turn it to it, but for right now, it's not and it's funny.
Im so glad people in here are saying St Paddys and not "St Pattys" its never been Patty... thats not a thing. Haha.
Happy Irish day!
Edit: Apart from Joe...
I think it was President Ford that came through Texas and started to eat a tamale with the husk on. Loved Chevy Chase imitating Ford on SNL. Back when I watched it with the originals.
Love corned beef and cabbage! One of my favorite meals and at least the one time of the year my wife will make it for the family!
Mrs JG did it in the crock with beer. Came out fantastic,forgot the soda bread ,love that too.
I did that at the buffet at Luxor.
Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! I'm wearing my green "I Love Las Vegas" T-shirt, and I have corned beef with cabbage, potatoes, carrots and onions in the slow cooker.
Guess what. Too late. The supermarket was all out of corned beef briskets....and cabbage.
As someone of Irish decent who lives in Boston.. what did I do today? Sat on the couch. Every day is St Pat's day in my house.
when I was growing up, corned beef was from a funny shaped can that you open with a key. Never knew the other stuff existed until I was an adult.
My family still likes the canned stuff stir fried with cabbage and onions. If I make that today, nobody would complain.
It's the smell of the cabbage that keeps me away. No offense meant. Understand it's what you generally grew up with.
I grew up eating duck's blood soup made with prunes. I wouldn't take offense to anyone turning their nose up on that.
In my elementary school days I couldn't stand the smell of cabbage. My school used to also make "buttered cabbage" as our vegetable for the school meals. I couldn't keep it down, lol! When the teacher came around to check if we ate some of everything I would hide the cabbage in my empty milk carton.
Now I love cabbage. Go figure.
As far as duck blood soup I would try it. I'm Filipino so we make pig blood pudding. I agree it's generally what you grew up with.
