St. Paddys 2008

Baby Crumpet hosted our annual St Patricks Day bash.

On the menu this year were:

Corned beef cooked for 9 hours in beer (wanted to cook for 10 - and could have used that last hour) and loads of fancy peppercorn & mulling spices, then finished in the oven with a mustard & honey glaze.

Instead of cabbage I used fresh sauerkraut then sauteed with purple cabbage (for color), back bacon and homemade chicken stock.

This year's version of Sheppard's Pie was made with a blend of chorizo and mild italian sausage.

As usual Gracie brought her signature Irish soda bread (served with Kerrygold Irish butter).

Merry time was had by all, highlighted by Don in a hat and Justin in an utilikilt.

Thanks to all in attendence: Don & Carol, Jim, Jenni & Nathan, Desiree, Chris, Gracie & Justin, Darcy, Leah and Fleetwood.
