Hello and happy luck o’ the Irish Friday!
Somewhere under that pile of veggies and pickling spices is a rump of corned beef waiting to be slow cooked with cabbage. Since we’ll be on a plane this St. Patrick’s Day (bonjour Paris!) I HAD to make my corned beef and cabbage before we left. Per usual, it was all a ruse for leftovers for my favorite rueben sandwiches. So. Dang. Good.
I updated my corned beef and cabbage recipe post this year to include instructions for both the crock pot and the Instant Pot, plus a link to a free download of my 10 Commandments of Slow Cooking. Sharing all the secrets and all the goodness all year long.
If you’re in need of a reminder, Sunday is St. Paddy’s day so don’t forget the green. And if you need some luck of the Irish recipe ideas, check out this post here.
In other news…it’s business as usual. I have to say, I was pretty proud of myself for not even noticing there was a Facebook and Instagram outage this week. That must mean I’m doing a good job of managing my social media time aka not being obsessive about it. :)
So why did Facebook have a big fart? I’m telling you, it’s because ittttttt’ssss baaaack and IT IS REAL! –> Mercury is once again in retrograde.
But enough about all that stuff, let’s dig into this week’s Friday Faves.
