To all of you Irish Lads and Lassies and wannabees Happy St. Patrick’s day.

My Soda Bread I just made.

The corned beef and cabbage, the potatoes are at the bottom.

Enjoy your day.

I’m wearing green.

I had my fish and chips and a right proper pint of Guinness last night just to get an early start. Tonight we’re just doing Ruebens. We be green, too.

Nothing like a pint of the real guinness to clear the cobwebs.

Well the Soda Bread was very tasty. The corned Beef, cabbage and potatoes were just perfect.

As we ate we were browsing the Internet to see the meaning of corned beef and cabbage in Irish history.

It turns out that the Irish made corned beef and sold it all over the world. They canned it and many a British soldier went to war being fed with his canned corned beef.

The Irish used to really eat a bacon and when it came time for St Pats day in New York they couldn’t find that but their Jewish neighbors had corned beef so that is what they converted over to.

The soda bread was made with soda instead of yeast, because yeast was not available or known. The British used The Crown Baking Powder, which was a mix of baking soda and Cream of Tarter The cream of tarter was the acid that caused the baking soda to create air bubbles and make your bread fluffy.

My wife told me I wasn’t wearing green. I told her I was, Green pants – she said they were just dusty. I told her the dust was from “Green Wood”

My son who never eats anything that we eat, loved the Corned Beef, so I guess I’m making him an Irish Russian. He’s adopted LJ Dave)
