I've always known it to mean "Ireland Forever".


I'm in the same boat with the cooked cabbage - no one else in my house will eat it. I do cook it for myself sometimes.

We usually buy new t-shirts for the kids to wear to school. They don't celebrate nationalities much around here so St. Patrick's Day probably won't be much in school this year.

Yes, it means "Ireland forever." Can you post a picture of the card? Bet it's cool looking!

Hope I didn't come down too strong on the corned beef thing I'm just carrying on what my Granma started! LOL!

I will say that I do buy corned beef (which my family likes) and make it sometime around that day--but not necessarily ON that day. Mostly I do this because corned beef is on a good sale then, and cabbage usually goes for 9 cents a pound (usually it's over 50 cents a pound!) So at that point it's a budget dinner and I do make it. They eat all the meat and I eat all the cabbage (and then I get a bellyache, but it's always SO worth it.)

Anyone got any tips on cooking cabbage so it won't be so "gassy?"

No problem Barbszy. I know you are a sweet lady and just did not want me to be misinformed, as it seems many other people are. Several stores here always have sales on briskets, which I think are made out of corned beef ?

Okay, I'll try but usually have problems posting pictures.

You're welcome Barbszy. I think that I have a couple more that are more specifically for St. Patrick's Day and will post them later if I can find them.

We used to do alot more when we lived in S. FL, we don't do much of anything now-except wear green, if possible.
I know alot of people like to have corned beef and cabbage for St. Pat's day-I have never liked corned beef and won't buy it, but I love cabbage so I try to make something with cabbage-usually what ever meat is handy that day.
This year I'll be on vacation from work so I'll be able to wear green-I can't if I'm working. In fact, I need to check into getting a shirt this week and get my dgk's shirts also-thing is, I can find shirts in the boys dept. but not in the girls dept. doesn't matter I know, oh well.
I wanted to get married on St. Pat's Day but my girlfriend did the year before I got married, so my dh and I picked the Ides of March instead...

It's not the cabbage that gets me but the grease from the corned beef riding on it when boiled. I make the corned beef in the crockpot by itself and crust it with brown sugar and a little mustard. The cabbage I'd rather have as coleslaw so we make potato pancakes with corned beef and coleslaw on top. A restaurant around here calls it a Meshugna which sounds Jewish to me, not Irish! But it's what we do on St Patty's Day.

The college students got mad that spring break falls on St Patty's Day so they made up their own go out and get loaded day called State Patty's Day, it's horrible and puts an extra load on our already overburdened police force and hospital emergency room. Nidgits! those kids!

I like corned beef and cabbage. Dh doesn't like the corned beef but loves boiled cabbage.
When I make cabbage, I put it in a steamer to cook. After we put it on our plates, we add salt, pepper and butter. We usually have it with polish susage or something similiar.

I think that I might try these for St. Patrick's Day for my family.

They don't like cabbage so I will cook it for me, along with this recipe for turnips.

For March's Cookie Carnival, (a blog event hosted by me) we are making a bar cookie that's perfect for a St. Patrick's Day dessert. I might make my hubby some green cupcakes for work.


My kids are always excited to dress up in green for school. Like I've said before, they don't celebrate much around here so we have to have our own little party!!
