With St. Patrick’s day coming up next week, LifeAsMom chose it as the theme for her Ultimate Recipe Swap this week, which really got me thinking.
Quite honestly, I usually don’t pay much attention to these smaller holidays–but that is another one of those things that I aim to change. I would love for my children to have precious memories of the fun things we have done on these holidays. You can keep them so simple, but so memorable!
This year, for dinner I plan to make Corned Beef, boiled potatoes, and fried cabbage. For a little bit of fun, I’ll make Green Milkshakes.
No fancy mint milkshakes here, my husband doesn’t like it.
I was emailed this recipe for Crockpot Corned Beef from Betty Crocker. It sounds so delish!
1 lg sweet onion, sliced
3-3 1/2 lb, well-trimmed corned beef brisket
3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 cup chicken broth
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup sour cream
1 Tbsp horseradish sauce
2 Tbsp parsley
In 5- to 6-quart slow cooker, place onion. Rinse beef and discard seasoning packet (or find another use for it). Place beef on onion and sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Mix broth and Worcestershire sauce. Pour mixture over beef. Cover and cook on Low heat setting 8 to 9 hours. Before serving, mix sour cream, horseradish and parsley. Serve with beef and onion.
And, since my oldest is greatly interested in history, I’m going to use this free homeschool curriculum about St. Patrick for a fun activity.
