Several of you have asked me to post this. We do make this every March17th, although my sister informed me that Corned Beef and Cabbage is not really eaten in Ireland. Oh well, I tried.

Even if my beloved Irish technically don’t eat Corned Beef and Cabbage, it is and always will be one of my very favorite things to eat.
