Food Thread: St. Patrick's Day! Corned Beef, Cabbage and Irish Whiskey -- A Moron Breakfast [CBD]

[Politics Thread Below]


Moronette and foodie Artisanal 'ette has graciously provided some actual content for today's Food Thread, since I have been subsisting on scrounged leftovers and hot tea for the last week.

Pro-tip: Don't get the flu.


St. Patrick's Day is coming up!

And March 17th is also Evacuation Day, a State holiday in Massachusetts.


Evacuation Day coincides with St Patrick's Day, also on March 17. This gives a reason to celebrate especially as many residents in Suffolk County are of Irish descent. Moreover, the Irish Catholics are remembered on this day for their efforts in helping General George Washington defeat the British soldiers on March 17, 1776. Activities on the day may include Evacuation Day re-enactments, essay contests, and visits to historically significant sites.

And another list...

Oh look...another one!

Irish Dry Stout
It's as if the Irish like drinking!

I lived in Dublin for a little while. Was a fun time.

Shepherd's Pie is one of those dishes I make with what I have on hand (meats or veggies). I have tried so many variations, I'm not set on one in particular.

I finally made that Creamy Roasted Garlic Potato Soup, but cut back the calories by using only 2% fat milk (which is what I had on hand), and skipped the croutons. I used 3 very large heads of garlic for roasting (not elephant, which I learned is not really garlic like garlic is), just very large ones with lots of garlic cloves. After my first bowl I could feel the garlic permeating from my pores and eyeballs! LOL, it was a food experience. Loved it. I wasn't sure about the Herb de Provence as the main herbal flavor, it's not one of my favorite herb blends, but it was a perfect balance of perfume. Very good, thick, hearty soup.

Creamy Roasted Garlic-Potato Soup

Take care.


Okay, one little recipe.....Which I may have mentioned already, but beggars can't be choosers.

Roasted Cauliflower with Ketchup

One large head of cauliflower, rinsed and cut into small florets
chopped garlic to taste
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Toss cauliflower, garlic, salt and pepper with olive oil until coated.
Roast the hell out of it until the tips begin to brown.
Toss with a few ounces of ketchup and return to oven until everything has caramelized a bit.

One warning: the ketchup at that temperature makes a huge mess. So line the roasting pan with aluminum foil, or make sure it isn't your night to do the dishes.
