Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
I’m going to skip all the fun Irish sayings and other Irish festivity and go straight to the food.
I know that it is a tradition to eat corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day, but while some of us love corned beef, I am willing to bet that their are many out there like myself who aren’t too excited about the cooked cabbage part. I have to admit that I am really enjoying raw cabbage lately in salads ect…, but the cooked version just doesn’t make the cut for me.
So, what do you eat with your corned beef if you aren’t a big fan of the traditional cabbage? Yep. It’s pizza of course.
So, here’s what you do:
- If you haven’t done so yet, get that corned beef in the crockpot -pronto! Remember fat side up! If you don’t have a crockpot, here are some other options– just ignore the cabbage part.
- When you have less than an hour left to cook, order a Garlic Jim’s Famous Gourmet Pizza. I would recommend cheese or perhaps cheese and veggies. Or maybe a Gourmet Garlic with it’s delicious pesto sauce to really get into green.
- If you are lucky enough to be in a delivery area that delivers beer, order a few with your pizza. Garlic Jim’s in Vancouver WA, stocks Deschutes Brewery Black Butte Porter, which will taste fabulous with corned beef and pizza. However they also deliver Bud Light which, in my opinion is perfect for green food coloring!
Ciao for now! (And may the luck of the Irish be with you)
