So kiss me, I'm shitfaced I'm soaked, I'm soiled and brown

(Anyone else think of St Patty's every time you hear that song? No? Just me? Ok, then...)

My St. Patty's Day was decidedly uneventful...and that's honestly, the way I prefer it. No green beer or car bombs for this girl-it's just not really my style anymore.

Instead, I went over to my parents house for some traditional Irish fare and brought Jimmy home to "meet the parents". It went well, which was a relief, but really how bad can things be when there's corned beef and cabbage? haha

He originally had to work, but got called off last minute so I had promised to make him a belated St. Patty's dinner on Sunday of delicious reubens. He went to the store to get all the supplies, so imagine my surprise when I came over on Sunday to find not sliced corned beef, but a whole 5-ish lb corned beef roast! (is that even what it's called? lol)

While we were out, I started looking up recipes for easy corned beef and found one with just two ingredients-

Can't get much easier than that!

All I had to do was rub the brown sugar over the meat...

Pour the Guiness over it...
And bake!

It was so super easy, even I couldn't mess it up! haha It turned out really well too-not dry, pretty flavorful. We both really enjoyed it and he was able to take it for lunch this week too-win/win!

Did you do anything fun for St. Patty's Day?
Do you like an traditional Irish food?

Wow, can't get any easier than that! Right up my alley too since I hate complicated cooking. If it isn't done in a jiff or easy like this, it's not happening!

That IS easy! Glad to hear the meeting of the parents went well for Jimmy. We didn't do anything too special for St. Patty's Day. Just a couple of shots of Irish whiskey, but no Irish food sadly :(
