St. Patrick's Day!

I don't know why but I love St. Patrick's Day. I just think it is fun- dressing in green, eating corned beef and cabbage. This year I was working until 6 so I wasn't sure how I was going to make the corned beef. I found a recipe to make it in the crock pot. I was a little nervous but it worked out really well. I just realized that I totally forgot to cook the cabbage! I'm not sure that anyone else would be sad about not having cabbage but I am. At least I had potatoes and carrots that were cooked with it. Ashley made rolls that were delicious. It was a very good meal. I am happy it turned out well.

Hope everyone had a great St. Patrick's Day! Now I can look forward to corned beef leftovers. Maybe I'll remember to make cabbage to go with leftovers!

Yeah! So glad it worked out for you :) Looks perfect. The potatoes are carrots are really the best part with it, but I understand being disappointed about no cabbage (even though that is really weird! haha)

Okay....I know what you can do with turkey, beef and ham left overs, but what do you do with corned beef left overs, but have corned beef again? I love cabbage. Remember grandma's marrinated brussels sprouts salad? YUM! I'm not a big fruit fan, but I LOVE me some vegetables.
