Corned beef and cabbage ... and a few odds and ends

Thursday was of course the mighty St. Patricks Day. We celebrated with making corned beef and cabbage in the crock pot and if I say so myself it turned out pretty yummy.

Here were the steps: In a crock pot put 2 chopped up onions, carrots (if you want them we didn't), beef, seasoning mix (that comes with meat), a beer and 2 tbs. yellow mustard. In a small bowl mix 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1 cup water (I used beef broth instead of water). Cook on low for 10-12 hrs. Remove corned beef , cover with foil and out in 200 degree oven to keep warm. To the crock pot & liquids add wedges of cabbage and then I added peeled cut up potatoes and added some butter. Turn crock pot to high and cook 40 minutes or until cabbage and potatoes are tender. YUM!

P.S I have my second interview on Thursday @ 1:30 so think of me at that time!

P.S.S Today is my "little" brothers 21st birthday!! Ahhh I feel old and reminiscent of my 21st birthday...all I am saying is thank you Heather for passing me the wine bucket ! lol
