^^^+1 More corned beef good memories, please......

I remember back in the early days of my automotive career as a parts driver, the best thing about St. Paddy's Day was the day after, there was an old time diner that would serve CB&C sandwiches; yep, the whole mess of corned beef, cabbage and potato on rye with mustard to go. Try eating that driving a Nissan D21 with a manual trans on I95

Disgusting stuff. My grandmother would make it. We lived 3 blocks from her when I was young and could smell her cooking when we opened our front door. The smell was so bad I refused to eat it.

Maybe I'm part Irish - love corned beef & cabbage.

Umbria, it's possible you are Irish. I didn't find out that my maiden name is Swiss into I was in my late twenties. Unfortunately both grandparents, as well as my dad, were deceased by then. No idea where the Swiss came from. On Gramma' s side, the courthouse where her grandparents were in Pennsylvania burned down. Have you ever tried to find a John Kelly or some other common name when there are no records? I think it's going to be a mystery all my life.

For some reason there is a different kind of corned beef ... the Jewish or kosher corned beef that's served on rye bread in Jewish delis. Tastes nothing like Irish corned beef. Kosher corned beef is mostly served as a sandwich meat and can be combined with kosher pastrami with spicy brown deli mustard on seeded rye. It's delicious. A famous sandwich is a combination of corned beef, pastrami, cole slaw and "Russian dressing" (similar to "Thousand Island" dressing) on rye. A kosher dill pickle on the side completes the plate.

In New York the most famous delis include Katz's Delicatessen (When Harry Met Sally was filmed there), 2nd Avenue Deli (no longer on 2nd Ave.), and the Carnegie Deli. In Philly there's Schlesinger's (formally The Kibitz Room), Famous 4th Street Deli, Rachael's Nosherai, and Herschel's in Reading Terminal Market. Baltimore boasts one of the greatest of them all: Attman's on Lombard Street.

Yes, I'm a great fan of deli sandwiches.

Growing up near Miami we had Pumpernick's, Wolfie's, Corky's (in North Miami Beach, they had the BEST potato latkes!) and The Rascal House. I wonder if any of these places still exist?

It's an East Coast thing. If you've never tried it, you might want to.

Have you tried doing the family tree thing? If you only have a name like John Kelly, then you are probably out of luck with that, but if you have a birth date, birth place, something like that, maybe you would have some luck.

My maiden name is Smith..... hahahahaha My father was born in England, but not sure exactly where. Nobody to ask, everyone gone.

Wasn't there a corned beef sold in a can, too? Long time ago. For sandwiches.

Nygal, my sister is really into that. We can easily trace mom's history, outside of the fact that we have, however far back, our great grandfather or great-great' s immigration papers from Ellis Island. But dad's is at a standstill. No clue who came over when &/or how/when they got here.

Y'all are killing me talking about corned beef and cabbage and deli sandwiches. Since moving to Texas, just about all there is here are Mexican restaurants, BBQ restaurants and the chains. The Mexican and BBQ restaurants serve delicious food for this region, but I miss food I used to be able to get when I lived in Michigan.
