Will probably make corned beef.  I like corned beef but love it better as a Reuben Sandwich and I also love homemade corned beef hash.

Haven't decided if I'll do a corned beef & saurkraut salad or have them in a casserole.  My MIL always made the corned beef and cabbage with potatoes and added a can of tomato juice.  She cooked them together and wow, talk about good eating!!!

Wow, this hasn't happened for a long time --- I posted a response and it doesn't appear to be on the forums!  I remember that happening just after the switch to this new program.  Oh well,  anyway, I'll probably make my MIL's recipe of corned beef, cabbage and white potatoes with tomato juice poured over this and baked.  Talk about good eating!!

Good question...haven't thought about it!  I might try making Golumpkies...I love them!  Last year I tried making Irish potato candy and it got pretty good!  I will just wear green for the day, I am part Irish!

We usually have corned beef, but I make coleslaw to go with it as I really don't care for boiled cabbage.  Neither of us have any Irish in our ancestry unless Scotch-Irish counts (what ever that is).  We will wear green though.

Here I go again ...... Susan, what are Golumpkies?

hmmmmmmm...... 60 years ago we made potato candy every christmas.   I made some just a couple years ago because the group I was talking too laughed and hooted about something as strange and unbelievable as potato candy.

My ancient version is to just take a chunk of boiled potato and start mashing powdered sugar into it.  The bit of potato takes an incredible amount of powdered sugar.   Keep adding and mashing until you get a solid, thick chunk.  Then use a rolling pin to flatten out the concoction ... just roll it into a thin - maybe 1/8" (a quarter inch is too thick) sheet.   Spread that all with peanut butter, roll it up, cut into slices and it's ready to go.

Nancy...

Soon, I won't post anymore, your giving me a complex! 

Golumpkies (not sure of spelling) is hamburger & rice wrapped in cabbage served in tomato sauce.

The candy that you described is called Irish Potato candy!

Haven't really thought about it.  My husband is 100% Italian and I am Italian and Polish.  I've made corn beef and cabbage a few times.  Don't know if I will make it this year.  We shall see.

HI Bakery 1 G, how is saurkraut salad made? I made some homemade sauerkraut and would love some ideas that don't involve cooking it because of the pro- biotics in the sauerkraut, cooking kills this.

Never made it with sauerkraut...sounds good!  Now hubby doesn't care for it but I love sauerkraut.  My BIL makes homemade and boy is that good.  I can sit down and eat just that!

Now when I make the stuffed cabbage, hubby will eat the filling but not the cabbage! 

Did you ever make pierogies filled with sauerkraut!  Now that good!!

My Husband doesn't care for the cabbage either,that's why I make unstuffed stuffed cabbage sometimes.I rinse the sauerkraut out put some on the bottom of the roasting pan,then I set all the cabbage rolls upright around the edges until the roaster is full,if I have extra cabbage I cut it in thin strips and put that on top along with more sauerkraut.Then I put my tomato sauce on and cover and bake on 350* until done.I made the sauerkraut myself this time and it is good.I have never had pierogies with sauerkraut but I bet it is good.We usually have the ones stuffed with potatoes and I saute onions and grated cabbage and serve them that way.Now I'm getting hungry.LOL  Sometimes I just make the meat and rice into meat balls in a tomato sauce and cook it that way we always called those porcupine balls.My stuffed peppers are made the same no sauerkraut in that,

I do the corned beef in the crockpot and add potatoes, onion, and
beer. I forgot what else I put in. I only do it once a year. I have
several crockpot recipes for it. I add cabbage about 30 min before
we eat. I really like it.
