    St. Patrick’s Day fun!

    On March 17th, we’re all a little Irish and there are lots of great ways to get the whole family in the spirit. Searching the web via windstream.net for St. Patrick’s Day crafts provides fun ideas for all ages.

    A holiday themed meal can be delicious, too and corned beef and cabbage is sure to be on the tables of many. So, I was thinking…have you ever wondered about the origin of corned beef and cabbage and how this became a St. Patty’s Day favorite? The traditional meal actually started out as pork and potatoes!

    There are several ways to cook corned beef and cabbage. Another simple search on Windstream.net shows slow cooker recipes to be a popular option. Growing up, I ate baked corned beef and cabbage. However, in the last few years, I was introduced to boiled corned beef. Both are very good, and even better with carrots and onions. Once you browse and find your favorite recipe, read up on this interesting St. Patty’s Day tradition.

    I'll close with a little Irish humor for you...what’s Irish and stays out all night? Paddy O'furniture! Hope you have a great St. Patrick’s Day filled with lots o’ luck!
