Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I saw this recipe for corned beef and cabbage (soooo easy) at Epicurious and might try it tonight if I can find a corned beef at the grocery this afternoon. People who have commented on that recipe site say that it is really good if made in a pressure cooker, but I am a little leery of them *although* there’s this one on Amazon which is not only a pressure cooker but a steamer and a slow cooker. And it’s digital, which somehow makes me feel more confident about it not blowing up the kitchen. Thing is, though, it’s $100 which is an awful lot considering I can only think of one thing (this dish) I could use it for. If any of you regularly use your pressure cooker or slow cooker, can you give me some ideas what you use them for that’s good?
Now for dessert, how about Guinness cupcakes with Bailey’s Irish Cream icing? I can’t eat them right now because of the alcohol but I bet Av would! Doesn’t that sound great!?
Oh, and if you’re thinking of last-minute St. Patrick’s Day decorations, I found this – seriously I think the tackiest holiday decoration I have ever seen – outside the Waffle House in Attalla!!
