Speaking of Corned Beef & Cabbage, I have a party at my house on honor of St. Patrick's Day, but it usualy has to be on the weekend either before of after the actual day, because of work schedules and the like. On March 17th, I will be up to my ears in photo shoots, but on Saturday March 13th, I will be preparing Corned Beef, Cabage, and Baked Potatos for the family. I slow roast my corned beef for 12 hours in a 250 degree oven. I slowly simmer the cabage in the crock pot for 8 hours with a piece of the corned beef for added flavoe. The potatoes, though a departure from the usual St. Patrick's Day tradition, are done out on the grill for two hours.
Nothing but rave reviews have I gotten for this feast, and it's one of my favorite parties. It's no Halloween, but it's a great day for food, folks and fun, and it's a great oportunity to take pride in my Irish heritage.
