Luck of the Irish

“May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.”

I’m planning my “green” menu for Thursday.  The one day of the year, this Polish girl pretends she’s Irish!  Hey, with a name like McArdle why not…

Green beer is a given.  Think I’ll  continue the green theme with crudites – sugar snap peas, asparagus and celery with the Barefoot Contessa’s Green Herb Dip, so yummy!   Entree: Corn Beef and Colcannon.  I bought my corn beef at Whole Foods last year – it was so easy and over the top tasty that I’m going to purchase it again.  All I did was put it in a baking pan, followed the baking directions, and it turned out deliciously fork tender.  I love Tyler Florence’s recipe for Colcannon.  Dessert; Chocolate Mint Brownies.  My mouth is watering, how about you?

    I am planning my traditional recipe of Irish Soda Bread. A long time family favorite. It is best served hot from the oven with butter. I hear that it is great from the toaster the next day, but we never have any left the next day!! Corn beef and cabbage is my delight for dinner. Steam your cabbage in water in a shallow covered pan. Drain it and serve your cooked corn beef on top of it. Nummy. I agreewith you DeeAnn – Corn Beef from Whole Foods is the best and easiest.
