I don't have to buy a whole packer brisket and most of the corned beef available are points. They are preseasoned.

Although, if I want pastrami, I usually just go to a Jewish deli and get a sandwich on rye.
Gotta give my smokers some exercise and I can use what ever wood I choose. Peach gives an excellent flavor. More than likely, I'll throw something else on while smoking the pastrami, pork butt or sausage.

I baked a chocolate Guinness cake for our work potluck today.

For at home, my Irish MIL is cooking, and is going to do corned beef and cabbage and potatoes, which I love. I will probably do soda bread...mine is savory, hers is sweet, and I prefer mine with the meal and hers as a dessert.

Fresh Rye bread from the bakery
beer to drink
That is pretty much like we will have and most people I know. WE are not having the Shepard's pie. I don't see much need for it with the corned beef but it does sound good. We will also have a salad with the rest of the meal. It is rare we have a meal without salad. Now even though we always have corned beef and yes, we are 1/2 Irish, straight from Ireland I really doubt Corned beef has anything to do with Irish. As mentioned in this tread, it is a made up tradition.

I’m making roasted cabbage, it’s half and half. Half as boiled cabbage and half as roast cabbage.

Edit to add, my husband liked the roasted cabbage. Next year, it will not be boiled.

Lasagna and garlic bread.
Love corned beef and cabbage, but we just had it a few weeks ago.

1. The Guinness cake sounds good and interesting. Do you have a link to the recipe?

2. I love what American's call Irish Soda bread. Mine is somewhere between savory and sweet. I'll bake a few loaves tomorrow. I like my recipe, but I don't love it. In the pre-computer days, I had a very good recipe. I must have lost it in a move, or it's stuffed in an old cookbook I hardly use.

I always add cardamom - from that old recipe, and golden raisins. How different are your sweet and savory breads?

While I am 1/4 Irish, I'd probably celebrate St.Paddy's Day if I wasn't Irish at all. I'm a festive person. I celebrate Cinco de Mayo and I am not one drop Mexican. I really enjoy ethnic street fairs, celebrations and holidays. Also regional customs from the US - for example collards and black eyed peas on New Year's Day, Indian pudding from New England, and I always keep grits on hand.

Some may call that "cultural appropriation", however, I disagree. I just think it's part of what makes the US unique. Our diversity.

We are invited to a St. Patrick's Day brunch buffet tomorrow at around 12:30. We don't have to take food, it isn't a pot luck, but we wanted to try each other's soda bread. They are very connected to their Irish heritage and have mentioned that "Corned Beef and Cabbage" is not authentic.

I know that she is serving a cheese spread (as of now, I only know a couple of Irish cheeses, neighbor says there will be more, some fish (I am not sure what) Irish Potato Salad which I have never had, roasted vegetables, rashers (I guess bacon) Irish stew with lamb - and more.

They will be playing lots of Irish music including the Chieftains, The Pogues, The Drop Kick Murphys, (one of my favorites) U2 and Van Morrison.

There will be Guinness, Irish beer (not sure what) and a St.Paddy's day Jaimeson cocktail
