Happy St. Patrick's Day
Therefore; I started the day off by making my honey Green eggs and ham ;)
Then while he went to work, I put in a 3lb corned beef with carrots, potatoes, onions and topped with cabbage. mmmmmmm I love me some corned beef like a fat boy loves cake... but, I set that on low and let it marinate for 9 hours....
Later that day I got the urge to also make Irish Soda bread... I love soda bread.. and I had buttermilk on hand.. so it was meant to be.. Plus I was a little stressed and making some bread helps my nerves..
The crust was awesome.. side note on home made bread... You never get a crust in the store like home made bread.. its hard and crunchy.. with the smooth textured inside.. its just pretty short of the best thing since sliced bread ;)
It only seemed right to have a desert. I should have made a key lime pie... and added some extra green food coloring... but I felt like Pecan.. and that picture reminds me of that cast iron muffin pan.. that is an antique.. The tall handsome cowboy bought me that at a yard sale.. it's a really neat, and that present meant a lot to me. and I'm trying to re-season it.. so I've been keeping it in the oven to bake off some of the years of use and misuse. Then we had a few friends over, and to my surprise none of them have ever had a "St. Patty's day dinner" I was thinking.. say whaaaaa? But, anyways This was my first St. Patrick's Day in South Carolina.. and It was wonderfully spent with good food and great friends.
