St. Patrick's Day

"Everyone's Irish on St. Paddy's Day!" Er... Maybe not ... Yesterday Richie bought a loaf of Oro-Wheat Jewish Rye - a big green & white sticker on it read: Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Because it's popularly believed (however wrongly) that this is National Drink A Gallon or Two of Beer Day, I will not give you the Irish blessing that starts, "May the road rise up to meet you!" (splat)

If you don't like picking the spices off of your home-cooked corned beef, cut the little envelope open carefully and put the spices/seeds in a tea ball and close it up tightly. Throw it in the water with your corned beef and when the beef is done, open it and throw away the spices/seeds. Tea balls are used with loose-leaf tea, by the way.
