Corned Beef & Green Mac-n-Cheese

On St. Paddy's day we usually try to do something festive.

This year, I was frankly....just tired.

My husband ended up cooking the entire very traditional corned beef and cabbage meal complete with un-traditional mac-n-cheese dyed green.

Kids loved it.

I also learned that corned beef is usually pink due to the preservatives in the meat. Who knew. I also learned that 'corned' is actually from the English reference to kernels of salt used to brine the beef.

Who Knew!

Hope the wind was at your back today - here's a big Slainte! (Cheers!) from me to you.
