This morning, my husband decided to make Sausage Gravy for us for breakfast - one regular, one gluten free. 2-1/2 hours later, I just finished cleaning up the kitchen and am sitting down with a cup of coffee and some quiet time on the computer. 😉 I did, though, get my corned beef and cabbage going during that 2-1/2 hour clean-up time. I just put the corned beef, carrots, potatoes, cabbage, and onion in the crockpot on low for 8 hours and let it simmer away all day. This afternoon, I will make some Irish Soda Bread to go with it, and we will have our wonderful traditional St. Patrick's Day dinner! I even bought some Kerrygold butter to use with the Irish Soda Bread.
This coming week is filled with doctor appointments and meetings, and supervising the grandkids for a half day each day. They are on spring break, but my daughter is working the first four days of an inter-session their school holds for students who need extra help. It is a half-day only, so I will have my afternoons to go where I need to go and do whatever I need to! We are also hoping to go visit my sister sometime during spring break, and I cannot wait to see her! We live about 6 hours apart, and visits are infrequent due to our busy lives! But this year I decided to try and get up to visit her at least twice a year, more if I can manage. I will also get to see my nephews and their families, and I just love to see them all.
I've got an easy week planned, meal-wise. Since it is spring break, I'm giving myself a break in the kitchen, too! Since the weather is turning warmer (40's and 50's), I am going to try and take a 30 minute walk each day. I am terrible about doing this, so wish me luck!
