Tasty! Very tasty.

 

My ancestors would be proud, cause that sure is a lot better (and greener) than potatoes!

My favorite fun fact about St Patrick's day is that Irish people don't actually eat corned beef.

Well...a lot of people in the U.S., at least once per year. I've spent almost two years living in Ireland and never once met someone who had eaten it...unless they had been in the U.S. during Paddy's day.

So probably Germans? Bahaaa i wonder im too drunk to go on any other Google trail besides what I'm currently researching. Yes das Germans or das Hebrews would be the guess. Thats real talk not racist. I'm both so I can say it. Def my guess tho.
I'm german and Jewish drinking Jameson and some beers. They call that split up the middle.
Just got my dog back from the vet for surgery she doing well I'm a happy man. See if I was Irish or in Savannah tonight id be fighting. Lol. I do wonder who eats that more now tho.
What about the potato bread? And am I wrong about their eradication of snakes? I heard that and also wonder this about the mysterious and intriguing Irish. . Also I saw a double rainbow 3 months ago searched long and hard and gd no Leeper cauns. I wonder bout them Irish;).
Gawdamm double Leeper chaun habitat if I ever seen one. Lola855c7c266960200f4aa6d05f11cc8a9.jpg5f9388bcd00c2f6f7924faf32c84ddab.jpg

Irish American i suppose. Corned beef is a Jewish staple had me wondering for a moment.
Happy Patty's day indeed.
https://www.usda.gov...-holiday-staple
I do enjoy this dish tho. I should have made some I had got busy.
Or the soda bread i mean. I guess that part is Irish? Looks to be so.

If I had to guess on the corned beef thing, it would be that back in the day (Think "Gangs of New York") where the signs "Irish need not apply" were all the rage, various people groups who were maligned and oppressed worked together (ie: lots of Irish and Cherokee marriages for example) - and the corned beef thing probably happened then, and just became a "thing" over time.

 

My best guess with absolutely no research done (and I'm Scotch-Irish, I really don't know the answer).  Its worth what you paid for it!

Yes corned beef isn't actually a traditional Irish meal.. not sure why Americans made it a tradition.. deviled eggs came from Ireland though.. that's enough to love the Irish.. lol

I thought deviled eggs were a Roman thing, but I could be wrong (again), I do tend to drink a lot :)

Now I am curious, just did a little search and it seems like it can be linked back to the Romans,  they may not have called them deviled eggs specifically but it seems as though humans have been boiling them,  cutting them in half, and then stuffing them full of various egg yolk mixtures for a very long time

I wonder if people in a far off future will be discussion the origins of Freedom Fries

What gets me is they never tell you in the recipe, how to get the devil into them so that I might use them for nefarious purposes, beyond what they do to some of us 12 hours later...

Here is a side note for St. Patties day :)    Left over soda bread makes for a really good base for a bread pudding.   I reluctantly admit that I'm not a huge fan of soda bread, or bread pudding.   I don't dislike either one, they just aren't my favorite thing.   But my wife turned our left over soda bread into bread pudding this year, and I think it was the killer :)  I really liked the little bit of saltiness / alkalinity of the soda bread with the sweetness of the topping for the bread pudding. They complemented each other very well, 

 

Just thought I would share :)  (BTW, I prefer St Urho's day over St Patty, due to my Finnish ancestry, but most of you will have to look it up to see what I'm talking 'bout, if'en you even care enough to even look, lol  :)

I'm of the opinion that the words bread and pudding should not be combined to form food. Not unlike head and cheese or loaf and...just about anything.
