A meal fit for St Patrick

Colcannon, Irish flag salad, reuben sandwiches. The only thing really Irish here is colcannon. It’s hard to miss with cabbage, leeks, mashed potatoes, a pound of butter and 2 cups of half and half. That stuff is amazing. My grandmother made it every Sunday. Not really. I discovered it on the internet about 10 years ago. There is no real one way to make it, cabbage (NOT KALE!!), leeks and butter seems to be the common ingredients.

I invented the salad which was awesome, those beans…my god, and the rueben sandwiches, while insanely hard to make since I didn’t have a clue what I was doing were great as well. There is corned beef in them but the sauerkraut, well, I considered it a nod to my german heritage which I basically try not to think about on St Patrick’s Day but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

  1. I had to google colcannon, because what is it? but it sounds very similar to the Scottish Tatties and Neeps, which is mashed potatoes and turnips. Yummy.
    The Whole dinner looks and sounds delicious.
