Ever since I can remember I have been eating Corned Beef and Cabbage on St. Patty’s Day. My mom took her corned beef dinner very serious. My parents would head to Down Town Detroit and go to Eastern Market to pick out a nice flat beef cut brisket.

So when I got married I continued the Tradition of a Corned Beef with Cabbage meal for St. Patty’s day weekend. Although I rely on my local Kroger’s for my corn beef, I still take this meal very serious. So you can imagine my surprise when I found the brand that my parents use to buy, from Detroit Michigan. Score. I love supporting my State.


How easy can this meal be, boil in a pot for 2-1/2 hours and then eat. I used a Dark Guinness, some water and the spice pack.


Vegetables on the menu, cabbage, carrots and red skin potatoes.


With an hours left on the Corned Beef cook time I added the potatoes and the carrots. Once they were cooked properly I removed the meat and the veggies, added some more water and boiled the cabbage  for 20 minutes.


Then I made and plate, and ate every bit of food on the plate.

I love Tradition. Now I have dinner for the next two days or so.

Plank Club Update: I am sitting solid with my 50 second plank, I have not been able to add-on to the time without breaking my form, so I will continue to do daily planks and hope that in time I will get stronger and be able to add-on to the time.
