For those of you who are wondering, except for our power being out all afternoon, I enjoyed my Saturday on Friday. My Saturday on Saturday was even better, though. Lisa and Bill and the girls came over for corned beef and cabbage dinner, which to our collective surprise was delicious. I usually only make corned beef once a year because throwing an entire meal in a pot of boiling water is not my favorite cooking method. This time, though, I decided to try something a little different. I cooked the meat in my slow cooker all by itself. Instead of boiled cabbage and potatoes, I made Polish fried cabbage and noodles. I steamed the carrots separately so that they would still taste like carrots, and since I was on a roll, I made some Irish soda bread, too. What a fantastic meal! I will never, ever make a boiled dinner ever again, and I just might make corned beef more than once a year now.
Thanks for stopping by, and whatever day it is where you are, have a great one!
