The weather was so nice last week, but we are going to have some more cool temperatures. 

The flowers are blooming, so spring is not too far off.

This being St. Patrick’s Day, I’m going to do one I hope you like. This is good anytime. 

CORNED BEEF AND MIXED VEGETABLES

1 corned beef brisket – 3 to 4 pounds, trimmed

6 – 8 small red potatoes

3 medium carrots cut in 2 inch pieces

2 T chopped celery leaves

2 turnips peeled and cut into wedges

1 medium head cabbage cut in 6 to 8 wedges

½ lb. green beans

3 – 4 ears corn, halved
