    Week 786 Weekly Dinner Menu

    Happy Belated St. Patrick’s Day! I tried cooking corned beef in the slow cooker for the first time and…after 8 hours on low it was still nowhere near done. Apparently for corned beef you should cook it on HIGH for 8 hours. That is a resilient cut of meat. Anyway, I think I’ll just go back to boiling it in the future. As for las night, we ended up with two hour delay for dinner but filled our time with games, fun and Guinness. It was great!
