Many people will be eating Irish food such as Irish Stew and Corned Beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's Day. Corned Beef is not an Irish dish. It is what Americans think the Irish eat. A more traditional meal would be ham and cabbage or bacon and cabbage. Some say that in Ireland on St. Patrick's Day the traditional green beer is prominent. However, in Ireland, many years ago, St. Patrick's Day is considered a holy day and Pubs were not open for business. There were no parades and no drinking.
very interesting I thought, but I personally love a good Corned Beef and cabbage dinner, Larry doesnt so Amanda and I use to go to Mom's for this meal in the past, maybe I can get her to start again for us. Now, Larry wont eat this, but he will eat Pastrami!! isnt that same as corned beef??
