Happy St Patrick's Day

What's your menu for today?

I'm just having corned beef & cabbage.
I usually do a homemade mustard too. But tonight I will simply doctor up commercial stone ground mustard with some horseradish, touch of honey and a drop of vinegar.

Back when I use to eat potatoes, I loved making green mashed potatoes! I'd make my regular mashed potatoes (2/3 potato, 1/3 turnip or parsnip) with lots of butter, herbs and garlic! Then I would fold in a puree of fresh spinach, parsley and cilantro and then add some Dubliner cheese on top. Oh so good!

what's my favorite Irish meal? One that I don't have to prepare.

Those potatoes sound really good. I love potatoes and spinach and have lots of both from my garden.

I wasn't able to get my corned beef until today due to the snow and the HAGS meeting yesterday. But I made an Irish Shepherds Pie for the potluck and one for home. That's what we're having tonight. tada - something I really don't have to cook today. :huge grin:

And yes, it tasted really good yesterday. The mashed potato topping has cream cheese and cheddar cheese in it. Yum.

:yikes: Don't like to cook???
For me, life without cooking would be misery. Especially on Holidays.


Shepherd's pie! Yum!
Do you use beef or lamb?

Well, I am not much of a cook, only very plain food. I used ground beef so technically I made a cottage pie. Shepherd's Pie has lamb in it.

I was working so my husband made dinner. He chose a lamb stew, and soda bread, which is much more traditional than corned beef. It was wonderful. lamb, potatoes, carrots and peas

This year I made an Irish Steak and a type of colcannon but KS was out of cabbage so I used leeks. I also made Bailey's Salted Caramel Brownies.

I then adjusted for Salted Caramel Bailey's because I had that liquer and I had Salted Caramel chips. Wasn't real sure how to adjust for the altitude but I did add an extra egg and less baking soda. They came out good but not gooey...more cakey so I need more liquid I guess.

gooey or cakey I'd eat some!
And I'm sugar-free and gluten-free... but screw it, those sound so dang good!

They are good! Yes, they were the Hershey's Sea Salt Caramel Chips and Bailey's Salted Caramel! I made truffles with that a couple of years ago and homemade salted caramel. I think what I will do next time is try it with real caramel. I mixed the chips into the batter thinking they would melt but they didn't. They still came out good!
