St. Patrick's Day Dinner!

Although this meal in not truly Irish, 
it's become a traditional St. Patrick's day dinner for my family.

Corn Beef & Cabbage!

Cook the Corn Beef according to package directions.  I like to put mine in the crock pot for 4-5 hours.  The last hour I add a bunch of baby carrots, one onion and half a head of chopped up cabbage.
(Corn Beef comes with a seasoning packet.  I don't like to use it because Corn Beef has a very strong flavor on it's own.) 

Red Potatoes, Cabbage & Bacon
(So good!  And so easy!)

-Grease a 9x13 pan.
-Cut 5 to 6 Red Potatoes cut into large chunks and spread them in the bottom of the pan. 
-Cut half of a head of Cabbage into large chunks and spread over Potatoes.
-Cut up a package of Bacon in to chunks and spread over top of Cabbage.
-Cut up one onion and spread over top of Bacon.
-Cover with Aluminum foil.  
-Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 45-60 min.  Or until potatoes and bacon are cooked through and Cabbage is tender.

Onion Cheese Biscuits

-Grab a box of Bisquick and prepare the biscuit recipe on the the box.
-Then add a cup of shredded Cheese and a handful of chopped up green onion.
-Bake according to package directions.

And that is our St. Patrick's Day dinner!  Along with a green drink and a green dessert!  
Check back on Wednesday for those two recipes!

My suggestion is to chuck the spice packet and mix apple juice with a little brown sugar and yellow mustard to taste (just a little) and put it in the crock pot, this is soooooo good!

I wish I was making this dinner! Or eating it after you made it would be even better! I need to try those potatoes. Mmmmm! I like the anonymous suggestion, too.
