The annual cooking and subsequent devouring of the corned beef and cabbage of doom has been completed at our home. It was accompanied by a first this year – Freshly baked Irish Soda Bread (which, unfortunately, turns out to have an ingredient that K. is allergic to – Caraway seeds, for those of you who like to cook for us on occasion).

The recipe I have is amazing. It’s truly one of my favorite dishes, and I only make it once a year (and didn’t make it last year at all…in fact, the last time I think I made it was for a St. Patrick’s Day party I went to up in Jacksonville about 4 years ago). It’s one of those bad for you, once a year kind of treats (let’s be honest here – The fat just drips off of corned beef).

Damn my belly is happy right now, and a general feeling of nostalgic bliss is settling over my very soul.

And now – A drinking song (with a twist for my particular tastes)


I’ll take back my pinata it’s wasted on you
Just spinning that pool cue all over the room
And give back the blindfold that’s under your shoe

Let’s drink, drink this town is so great
Drink, drink cuz it’s never too late
To drink, drink to no big surprise
But what words rhyme with buried alive
What words rhyme with buried alive

You could be a float for the 4th of July
Based on your theme of “Wallflowers Grown Wild”
Look thru your peephole, you’ve won every prize

Let’s drink, drink this town is so great
Drink, drink cuz it’s never too late
To drink, drink to no big surprise
But what words rhyme with buried alive
What words rhyme with buried alive

In your monkey suit on a cigarette break
The lunchtime crowd, they won’t even blink
But you’d be sad if they did
But you’ll be sad…

Let’s drink, drink this town is so great
Drink, drink cuz it’s never too late
To drink, drink to no big surprise
But what words rhyme with buried alive
What words rhyme with buried alive
