It was as good as it sounds.
If you're thinking that maybe it doesn't actually make sense to combine the two, first of all, you're wrong, and secondly just give it a shot. You may just be pleasantly surprised by how well the two flavors meld.
Because of the meat product, I would recommend storing them in the fridge and eating within about a week...if they last that long. Otherwise, freeze them for later.

The best part of it is the butter though.
I really can't ask for more.
Well, I could asked for browned butter, but that seems a little demanding on my part.
When I'm at home, I'll keep browning my butter and topping with fresh lemon zest, but when I go to the theater, I'm just going to be overjoyed with real butter made from real cream which came from real cows!

I, on the other hand, am a little pickier.
Anyway, you don't care what I like. You care what you like, and you'll like these margs made with all fresh ingredients, no added sugar or any other sweeteners, and the perfect blend of tequila and cointreau. Yes, I know exactly what you like.

I hate the physical symptoms obviously, but even more so, I hate that I can't go out and play. When I got the flu earlier this month, it was hard to get up the energy to go to the gym or even just walk Dingo around the block. And it was not a welcome change when I found myself getting winded walking upstairs.
For me, the time goes quicker when the soup is good.
Ginger and fresh vegetables are supposed to be good for your immune system - I don't really know if that's true or if it's just the placebo effect, but either way I'll take it. This soup made me feel better!

My family is "Irish." The quotation marks are important. I think we actually have some sort of Irish heritage, but I've never visited the country, I definitely don't have a cool accent and I have no knowledge of any relatives that are actually from Ireland.
Still, my last name is Flinn and for that reason, I like to eat my corned beef and cabbage on New Year's Day and St. Patrick's Day. I also like green things and soda bread.
In the hopes that we share the same interest in Irish foods and green things, I've compiled this list of green drinks and of course threw in some corned beef and Irish soda bread for good measure.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Kiwi Grapefruit Cooler is showing only it's natural colors.
Going Green Smoothie - there's nothing that will make you feel quite so healthy in the morning as a bright green smoothie. (Pairs especially well with a yoga mat ;) )
Rosemary Gin & Tonic's are good anytime - you don't need a holiday for an excuse.
Kale Apple Smoothie. Remember what I said about green smoothies and yoga mats. Yep. That again.
Jalapeño Lime Spritzer is the one for you.
Honey Beer Bread is not really Irish (well, maybe it is - I don't know), but I couldn't have a whole post about St. Patrick's Day and not include beer. Throw a Guinness in this super easy bread recipe for a festive side or snack.
Irish Soda Bread is the baked good to go with.
Crockpot Corned Beef & Cabbage. 'Nuff said.
