Forgive the Irish!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Today is the day that we all forgive the Irish and celebrate… something, I’m not really sure… by encouraging the standard Irish stereotypes; Loud, drunk, brawling men drinking green beer and wearing a lot of green making trouble and eating potatoes.

I mean c’mon how insulting is this? We all know that the Irish don’t wear that much green!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to go to work, put in a couple of hours and then head to a quaint little Irish pub in Michigan for some of the best Corned Beef and Cabbage I’ve ever had.

Oh, btw, we only received about 2 inches of snow yesterday.

Happy St. Paddy's day to you too! Enjoy the meal, some good stout, and may you never see the tragedy of Erin Go Braless, and no one notice...

While corned beef and cabbage is one of my absolute favorites, you must, must, must ask vw about ricotta cheese and garlic. You wanted dirt and that should entertain you.

Wow, driving all the way to MI for corned beef... that must be some damned good beef :P

How the hell do you "corn" beef?

Sounds like a process that's illegal in Utah...

Well, at least according to the American Heritage Dictionary, to "corn" is a term used to describe the process of preserving meat in a brine.

So, corned beef would apparantly be the celebration of eating meat that was stored for months with no refrigeration! Yum yum!
