Do you have your Cornbeef for tomorrow's dinner yet? For those who like it and are making it, what's your preferred method? I like to slow cook it all day, and make Reubens out of it. I like to eat it with Potatoes and Cabbage first, but my family likes to skip that step and move right on to the Reubens, so it has become our tradition. :icon_hi:

Just got back from the grocery store - my Kroger's was out of corned beef!! Had to run to Aldi's and they had plenty left.

I do mine in the crock pot with onions, potatoes and carrots. Then cook the cabbage on the stove with some of the juice from the crock pot. IF we have leftovers, we do sandwiches. Mmmmmm....can't wait until tomorrow!

Good for you! Hold on to traditions. I wonder if I will have to go all the way to Aldi's? My small town store may be out too. Ugh... But, Dh wants to go to the Price Club anyway... So we will be on the hunt! Happy St. Patti's day to you! (Yes, I'm Irish) Irish and Scott. I will use my family Tartan for a table runner tomorrow!

Why are we eating corned beef? Is this a good luck thing like black eyed peas on new years?

It's St Patrick's Day and us Irish tend to eat corned beef and cabbage. There might even be some green beer in the mix for some folks! :) On my Dad's side, all 4 of his grandparents came to the US from Ireland.... :)

I got ours last night. I slow cook mine on the stove top and make an American Soda bread to go with it. It really is so moist, just like a cake. Maybe I will post the recipe later.

So a Tartan is just Scottish? not Irish?

PS... we got a nice Corn Beef. I'm going to put it in tonight, so I can smell it cooking! We are one of the couples hosting the "New People" dinner tomorrow after church, and I have to take Mexican for that, but I will be eating Corn Beef when I get home!

Both the Irish and the Scottish wear them. It's a clan thing, each clan had their own tartan, which is the pattern in the fabric that kilts, sashes, hats etc are made from. You were known by your tartan.

Also, O' on the front of a name indicates Irish, and Mac on the front indicates Scott, but not all have them. My great granny was a O' Halleran, my Grand mother was a Macfarlane who Married a Lamont. My maiden name was Lamont.

Oh, I see - my moms maiden name was MacNamara and I always thought that was Irish....

Google it. It may be. I was taught it this way... I'm all for learning something new!

Well, I googled it, and it is Irish. Maybe Mac, or Mc, is the one that is either or?? I know O' is Irish!! O'Malley, O'Halleran... O'... anything. LOL. But so is Mac or Mc Namara!

Love the colorfulness of the Macfarlane, but the Lamont has the look of Black Watch which of course, being a nice green and black with a stripe outsells them all! LOL I'm German, something, a bit of American indian, something ... But I wear my Black Stewart Skirt when I can - Got a photo somewhere (from ages ago?)

So glad you had photo's - I love seeing the various tartans!

God look up Buchanan - Those POOR peps... bright orange and omg bright yellow *gag*

My MIL's family have a McFarland tartan. I've made corned beef and cabbage with carrots, potatoes, and cabbage on the stove, in the crockpot and in the oven. We are skipping it this year due to DH's diet, but maybe next year! I think my best efforts were in the crockpot.

I always have fussed about the floors, until a few years ago. When you have a 'boat load' of company, nobody notices the floors. There's too many interesting people to talk to, right? The floors WILL need attention in the morning, however.
Another thing I learned along the way, when hosting a large party. Put decorative napkins in the bathroom for guests, and a readily available waste basket. SO much better than drying your hands off on a community towel. EWE...

If my memory serves me correctly I did some research once along time ago on the "Cairns" name it too WAS Irish and used to be O Cairns but the Cairns clan was run out of Ireland because they were bad people ,they came to America and dropped the "O"

Well, that is interesting because in my search I found that it was Scottish and most of the time it looked to have mostly green - but on the register it came up mostly blue - and also it is MacNamara - McNamara does not exist (in my search)

Thanks! I HAVE a good recipe, but there are these things called Laziness, impatience and a sudden urge for something, you know? LOLWHAT kind of grocery with a good bakery doesn't have Irish Soda Bread two days before the holiday? They have Easter cakes already!

My DD's Italian grandfather is usually the Irish soda bread maker. Her Irish grandmother is in charge of the Italian Easter egg bread. Go figure. But they are both in SI and we are not.

Don't do cabbage, just onions & carrots in the crockpot with the corned beef...
Which I forgot to put in the crock pot this morning before church; didn't remember until the pastor was giving the benediction.:icon_doh:
So, we'll be having corned beef on Monday, March 18.
