St Patrick’s Day

I love St Paddy’s day ! Mostly because I love corned beef and it gives me an excuse to make it. Corned beef has become so expensive that I really cannot justify making it more than once or twice a year. Everyone in the house loves it as well, which means I always have to purchase two because the meat gets eaten so quickly.

I have always done a traditional corned beef and cabbage pot on the stove, but I have found a new way to make it that is just as good if not better. We always have so much of the cabbage left over, I wanted something that would eliminate that waste. So I make my cabbage roasted in the oven with a balsamic drizzle when you plate it.

Instead of boiling the potatoes with the corned beef, I learned how to make colcannon. Colcannon is a traditional Irish dish that is really yummy. Just make mashed potatoes and mix with Kale. It gives the potatoes color and some extra flavor that everyone enjoys. You can google both to find out how to make them and choose a recipe that suits your taste buds.
