With all that Scandinavian and Welsh blood flowing in the veins of Utah, I'm not sure how many of you have Irish roots. But, I felt like creating a little thread in which we could share how we honor/celebrate/anger our ancestors by our ignorance of all things Irish.
Today we made Irish champ and corned beef and cabbage (simmering as I type this). Walmart had point cut corned beef brisket for $1.97 a pound, so I got three of them and froze two. The champ was delicious. The stew should be ready in about 20 minutes.
I told the kids about their Kilpatrick, McKissick, and McKendrick ancestors, explaining how the McKendricks were Scottish people who came to Ireland across the Straits of Moyle.
Basically, we were one four-leaf clover away from looking like an old House of Pain video.
