As we know, yesterday was St. Paddy's Day. No one in my family is Irish, but every year for as long as I can remember, my parents have made corned beef, cabbage and potato pancakes in celebration of the holiday. This year was a bit hectic and it was decided it was going to be skipped. I was a bit bummed but got over it. Then I got a call yesterday around 4 from my mom inviting us over for an impromptu corned beef, cabbage and potato pancakes dinner. I kind of hesitated as it was late and I had already prepared a potato au gratin casserole for dinner plus I had a couple of loads of laundry going. After himming and hawing I decided to go. I quickly put the casserole in the fridge to eat tonight, grabbed Sonya and Hubbs and off we went. I am so glad we did because it was excellent. When I was younger I HATED corned beef, but now I really enjoy it. Potato pancakes are one of my favorite things ever. Watching me eat potato pancakes you would think you were watching the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. I have serious potato pancake eating skills. Don't be jealous.
