It has been a week now since many of us enjoyed corned beef & cabbage. If you are lucky , you have an Irish neighbor who supplies you with delicious Irish Soda Bread, hot out of the oven. If you really are experiencing the luck of the Irish you get to share it all with family you've not seen & have a chance to do some catching up. That was our March 17 & it is all memories now. Some captured digitally. Helping a niece make her first batch of "real" lemonade--picking the lemons herself & squeezing the juice & then watching that sweet, toothless, 6 year old smile when we all drank her concoction. The only tangible thing left was that bit of corned beef stowed in the freezer. Couldn't think of a better use for it than to make our favorite hot sandwiches-reubens. Nice marbled rye from the bakery, aged swiss cheese, thousand island dressing, and a bit of crunchy sauerkraut and of course that thinly slice corned beef. They tasted great and I feel like I won't need to eat for about a week--very filling.
