Four Foods on Friday

I found this fun food meme on Beastmomma's site a few weeks ago and since I am a foodie, I thought I'd play along this week. If you'd like to participate, visit Fun Crafts and Recipes.

Here are this week's four questions:

What's your favorite green food? Broccoli

Do you eat anything special on St. Patrick's Day? Yes, birthday cake because that is my birthday!

Do you drink any Irish beverages - tea, coffee, ale, beer etc? I do love Irish coffee and Killian's Red Ale, but I do not like Irish whiskey!

Share a recipe for corned beef: Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

6 to 8 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into thick (about 1/2-inch) slices
3 medium carrots, thinly sliced
2 ribs celery, thinly sliced
1 corned beef brisket, about 3 pounds
1 cabbage, about 2 pounds
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 cups water


Lightly butter or spray a 5 to 6-quart crockpot; layer potato slices over bottom of pot with carrots. Place corned beef on vegetables. Slice cabbage into 8 wedges and arrange around meat. Sprinkle with the pepper and add water. Cover and cook on LOW setting for 7 to 8 hours, until meat and vegetables are tender.


  1. so essentially everybody celebrates your birthday lol

  2. Happy belated birthday, it must be a great way to celebrate :) I like Irish coffee or is that the same thing as Old Baileys?

  3. Happy Belated Birthday! What a great excuse to celebrate even if you're not Irish..."kiss me, it's my birthday!"

  4. Happy Belated Birthday Lisa!!
    The Corned Beef recipes sounds delicious. I'm copying it to use, I need to get a larger crockpot and it will be perfect.
