St. Paddy's Day Dinner
You know when something doesn't taste bad, there is nothing really wrong with it but you just don't like it? And if you never have it again as long as you live you would be okay with that? Well that is how I feel about a corned beef and cabbage dinner. Turns out Moe feels exactly the same way. LOL! Neither of us enjoyed dinner last night. Although be both liked Linda's Herbed Irish Soda Bread. Moe had a couple of slices of the bread again this morning, toasted, with scrambed eggs. Linda's bread was the best part of the meal. You can find the recipe on Linda's Blog How to Cook a Wolf. For the herbs I used fresh chives and black pepper. I would definitely make that again.
But back to the Corned Beef dinner. The meat was very good. I'm looking forward to a corned beef sandwich. And I liked the cabbage. Moe liked the meat and he liked the potatoes and the carrots, but put all together and it really is a very bland boring meal. I don't make this meal every year and whenever I do, I remember why I don't. I think next year Steak and Mushroom Pie or maybe an Irish stew will be on the menu.
