St. Patrick's Feast

Every St. Patrick's day we have the traditional corned beef, cabbage and potatoes. I could definitely eat this more thank once a year. It's so easy and yummy.

Corned Beef
I just get the packaged corned beef from the store. It already has all the seasonings, it's ready to go. I just throw it in the crock pot and put enough water in to come up about half way up the sides of the meat. Let it go for about 4-6 hours.

Cabbage and Potatoes:
2 potatoes (not green) cut into chunks
1/2 head of cabbage chopped

Put potatoes in a skillet that has a top put enough water in to cover, or almost over the potatoes. Cook for 10 minutes and add cabbage. Cover and let cabbage steam 10 minutes while potatoes finish cooking. When done remove lid and let the extra liquid cook off. Serve with plenty of butter and salt.

To finish off this meal in true St. Patrick's fashion we drink green ginger ale. I figure it's still green ale without being beer :)
