Happy St. Patrick’s Day!


The girls couldn’t wait to jump outta bed this morning and get their green on, they even got poor Maggie in on it!

The other night I got a head start on St. Patty’s Day and cooked up some corned beef and cabbage in the ol’ crockpot.  The recipe came from Food Network and I have to say it was delicious, click here for the recipe! Where are the pictures? Sorry, I just didn’t find anything attractive about pale cabbage, cooked carrots, potatoes and beef, sometimes things are much better eaten than photographed. lol

Last night we had lots of leftovers so I made a yummy panini!

Corned Beef Panini

  • Marble Rye bread
  • corned beef, sliced thin
  • cooked cabbage
  • whole grain mustard
  • swiss cheese

Place all ingredients between two slices of marble rye bread and cook in a panini press or hot skillet until cheese is melted.


What are you cookin’ up tonight?

  10. That panini looks perfect! We went out for lunch yesterday, and I got a corned beef reuben. For dinner I ended up getting sushi... so un-festive.

    Love that bow on your dog! We need to find something similar and maybe a little less flashy in orange for our dog to wear at our wedding. :)

  11. Your dog is adorable!! So festive :)

    I made a similar corned beef sandwich last year and now I'm totally craving one again!! I'm waiting for my corned beef dinner until next week when my parents are cooking one :)
