My sister Ele, loves to make sure that for St. Patrick’s Day, Ralph has a traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner. Since we were busy on Saturday, we scheduled it for Sunday. Ele makes a mean corned beef or so I hear. I don’t think I ever tasted hers before I became vegetarian. I’m sure it’s delicious because it’s always met with many oohs and aahs.
(Not sure what’s happening with the photos, here…I did internet explorer updates yesterday. That might have something to do with it, but I’ll have to figure that out later.)
Back to the food! The mac n’ cheese was delicious as always, Ele is also a master at that! The cabbage was good and after the photo, it was adorned with lots of ketchup. That’s something I had never done until I met Ralph. He love ketchup on cabbage and if you’ve never tried it, you should. Very tasty.
Dessert was something wonderful, not something I should be eating too often (especially after Saturday’s chocolate cake!)
There, that looks better. This is wonderful and comes from a bakery called Pisker’s from Westvile, New Jersey. It’s been in business for 87 years! Ele and I remember our Grandparents taking us there when we were very little. It’s called a cheese pie, not a cheese cake. My favorite is their pineapple, but the local store that carries them only had the cherry. It was Delicious!
Yesterday, I started a book that so far has been a wonderful surprise.
I got this at Goodwill for 49 cents as I do so many of my books. I wasn’t sure what to expect of this. My only experience with Barbara Kingsolver was when I listened to her book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle on audio. It was interesting, but didn’t really grab me. For whatever reason, this book has grabbed me. It could be due to the fact that the book is set in the Southwest, but I’m not sure that’s all there is to it. For me, her writing style is very easy to read. I’m really enjoying it so far. I hope to get some more reading done today.
Drinking my coffee. It’s going to be a difficult morning.
