Shamrocks and Corned Beef!

St Patrick's Day is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate with your family and friends than a traditional meal of Corned Beef and Cabbage!  So grab your apron and let us turn now to our 1958 CookIndex recipe box...

Now that the main course is taken care of it's time to get dolled up!  Grab your kelly green sheath dress, touch up your pearlescent coral lipstick, and add a brooch to top off the look!  Might I suggest this lovely shamrock-inspired brooch which is featured in our shop!?  Click here for details.

And once the wearin' o' the green is over and you are back to your workaday woes you'll wish you could prolong the fun so turn those leftovers into a Corned Beef Casserole!  The husband and the children will sing your praises once they get a taste of this!  I mean, it has cream of asparagus soup in it, for crying out loud.  Kids LOVE asparagus.  Right?
