Corned Beef And Cabbage Easy As Boiling Water
Sorry, no food p*** today. My computer crashed last week, taking all of my pictures with it. I hate it when I actually remember to take pictures and then I can't use them! I feel like such a failure.
While St. Patrick's Day traditions don't generally bring marathons to mind the Shamrock is a great tradition for young and old alike. What a great way to celebrate, see some world class runners and support many wonderful charities such as Operation Smile, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training (TNT) program, the Virginian Pilot Joy Fund bringing holiday happiness and gifts to nearly 26,000 underprivileged children in Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, City of Franklin, Virginia's Eastern Shore corned beef syns Isle of Wight Count, the Mike McGreevy Memorial Scholarship Fund and Hope of the Warriors.
St. Patrick's Day falls during the Christian season of Lent. Irish Catholic families would attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. They would feast on Irish bacon and cabbage, as the Lenten prohibition on meat was waived for the one day. The tradition changed from bacon to corned beef and cabbage beef when the Irish settled in New York and found out about the cheaper cut of beef from their Jewish neighbors.
With apologies to Seattle, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and a few other cities, Philadelphia gets the fifth spot on this list. This is the only city apart from New York slow cooker corned beef and cabbage Boston that held its first St. Patrick's Day parade before the American Revolution (in 1771) and it still attracts several hundred thousand revelers each year.

Every day between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., Tammie Coe Cakes has a rotating variety of small sized sandwiches for $2 each. Some possible sandwich selections: Tuna, turkey/avocado/roasted pepper, and a Cuban sandwich with mustard and pickles. Have 1, or mix it up.
No place in NYC serves a sandwich quite like Primanti Brothers (or quite as good in my opinion). Test out your local deli and let me know if they'll whip you up a makeshift one. Ask them for a slow cooker slow cooker corned beef on high and cabbage sandwich, with French fries and coleslaw (BETWEEN THE BREAD).
Although it's not a traditional Irish meal, corned beef brisket and cabbage has become an integral part of Irish-American culture and it's often the center of the the St. Patrick's Day holiday dinner table.
Here is the link to Paula's easy New Years Day meal, and the great thing is that it uses a can of corned beef, not a big brisket or something. In honesty, most of us didn't realize that it came any other way! Check out this recipe for a great roast beef sandwich spread that my Aunt Lois used to make.
