Because it is all about the sauerkraut!!! My favorite brand of sauerkraut is Frank’s Bavarian – my Dad used to love this one too – it’s slightly sweet with the caraway seeds. I could literally eat this out of the can cold!
So while the beer I chose for this dinner is not Irish – it is damn good. Boddington’s Pub Ale from Manchester, England. Tony introduced me to this beer and I’ve never looked back. It’s expensive, typically $8.99 for 4 pints, but it is so creamy! If you can ever find this beer on tap do it!
So I cooked the potatoes and carrots at my office in seasoned vegetable broth this afternoon. When I got home I just tossed it all in with the corned beef that had been cooking in a covered pot in the stove for 2 hours at 350. After I added the veg, I cooked for an additional 30 minutes while Tony and I enjoyed an awesome breeze, read the paper and had our beer!
I have no idea how many calories my dinner was, but I had about 750 to spend so I am going to call it even!
Another night of BizTV! Can’t wait to see the reaction of friends and family when the contestants go home tonight on Biggest Loser! I am still a week behind on American Idol – I’ll have to catch up with those soon!
See you tomorrow for none other: corned beef hash!
