I’m Irish. Technically, I’m only a quarter Irish but having been born a “Monahan,” I can’t be anything but Irish. As such, St. Patrick’s Day is an important holiday, one which should be celebrated with corned beef, cabbage, carrots, potatoes and, in the case of my husband, green beer.
I’ll admit I have never cooked corned beef. That’s not to say I don’t eat it, I’ve just never cooked it. Amee’s corned beef recipe post last week inspired me to give it a try. I guess I should clarify that. Since I was working the day we chose to partake of our celebratory St. Patrick’s Day meal, my husband prepared the corned beef, cabbage and carrots and what a meal it was!
Needless to say, we’ll be having that meal again. I might even cook it next time. One way to be sure this happens is I’ll pick up a few extra corned beef briskets this week and freeze them. By doing this, I’m buying a special holiday meat at what is most likely the lowest price I’ll find all year. Why save holiday meals just for the holidays? There’s no rule against having Thanksgiving turkey and all the fixings in the spring or Easter ham in the fall.
