|This is Vivi's plate, complete with green milk...she thinks I'm a rockstar!|
So, of course this time of year is when you can find a plethera of corned beef in the grocery stores and when it's on sale. I dare you to find one on sale any other time of the year. Being a corned beef lover, I've checked. Pretty much weekly. Believe me on this point. Anyway, it is that time of year, and I couldn't be happier!
Even though my family is primarily German (way back in the old days of course), and I've never been to Ireland, and my hair only turns red in the summer, I am a fanatic for this meat. You see where I'm going...yes, it was Irish dinner night Chez Akre. I'm pleased to report that even the sweetest 5 year old leprechaun in the world not only gave the meal a thumbs up, but she ate with Irish gusto! Our menu? Corned beef, Syracuse salt potatoes and sauteed green beans. And for the Vivver, green milk...it's magically delicious, you know.
