snakes, my ass.

it's that time of year again. the annual post wherein i say disparaging but no less true things about st. patrick.

i'll spare you the vitriol as i'm sure you're familiar with my feelings by now and move on to the good stuff!

corned beef slow simmered for hours and then finished off in the oven enrobed in a delicious dijon mustard, brown sugar, and clove glaze.

cabbage, red potatoes, and carrots boiled in the broth left from the corned beef until tender.

homemade and baked in a cast iron dutch oven irish soda bread.

a horseradish sour cream sauce to serve along side.

and of course, guinness. black and tans to be specific.

you don't have to like st. patrick to enjoy the day. plus there's irish floating around in me somewhere. but, i suppose that doesn't really matter today now does it?

moving right along.

i know when i hear the phrase

"you ruin ALL the fun!"

i have either

a. just saved myself at least a couple hundred dollars in repairs or replacement.


b. just prevented the almost certain breaking of a limb.

ruining all the fun



happy st. patrick's day!!!
