One of the best things to enjoy about Corned Beef is the left overs. I love to make a Corned Beef Sandwich, or some would call it a Reuben Sandwich.I love the nice thick slices of beef laying on a delicious sauce and smothered with sauerkraut and Swiss cheese. We just love this sandwich and always look forward to the Corned Beef left overs.

We live so far inland that we very rarely get fresh seafood, most of it has been frozen. We can sometimes get fresh Tilapia, but it sure doesn't last long in the market. This recipe is quick, easy and has a delicious blend of herbs. This is a perfect weeknight meal or a special company meal, it would be good anytime.

The first day of spring this week and March Madness is in full swing. We are looking forward to the weekend and watching some of the games with friends. I am very excited about our spring garden, we will be having a special spring dish very soon. I think there is enough asparagus to make my chowder this week to welcome spring. I hope that our meal plan will inspire you to make meal plans for your family which will save you time and money.

My husband loves a Pistachio dessert and this Pistachio Parfait is one of his favorites. I enjoy taking the dessert to pot luck dinners or serving it for friends and family. I recently made the dessert and had to take my photo's in a hurry, folks were standing and waiting for the dessert to be served. This is a great dessert that is so easy to make. If you make it a day in advance of the event it is even better. This Pistachio Parfait never last long here at the cottage.

Corned Beef With Vegetables is a wonderful Irish recipe that our family enjoys from our Irish heritage. I remember my Grandmother and my Mother making a similar recipe but they did not have the luxury of a slow cooker that we have today. I love the flavors of the beef and the vegetables in this recipe and the unusual blend of seasons that go into making this a winning dish.
