Whadja all do? Not being very Irish (there is a little in me somwhere...maybe on the few freckles on my nose!), I don't usually go all out. I hate cooked cabbage, so never do corned beef and cabbage. I did have some country spare ribs in the fridge. I was planning on braising them, but while on the phone with my aunt, she suggested cooking them with sauerkraut and brown sugar with onions. The brown sugar part turned me off a bit so I eliminated that and just used a bit of the College Inn broth with roasted vegetable and garlic. I sauted the ribs with an onion to render some of the fat and then added the drained sauerkraut, broth, salt, pepper and garlic. It was good and a bit Irish (I guess), though husband said it was very much like a polish food that his grandma used to make. We had beer too, so how's that for a semi-Irish dinner? Missy asked if she could have soda with dinner, since it was a holiday. I thought that was funny!
