Has anyone else noticed the grocery stores practically shoving corned beef and cabbage in your face? Clearly they know St. Patrick’s Day is on its way!
As a big-time fan of corned beef, I fell for their marketing tactics hook, line and sinker yesterday and bought some sliced corned beef from the Publix deli.
Tonight I used the corned beef to make a Reuben sandwich. I spread a bit of butter on two slices of honey wheat bread, added two slices of Swiss cheese, corned beef, chopped cabbage and a homemade version of Thousand Island dressing and cooked the sandwich on medium-low heat in a skillet.
The end result was jammin’!
I made my version of Thousand Island dressing by combining equal parts light mayonnaise, ketchup and sweet relish before spreading it onto the bread. It looked pretty horrific, but tasted great!
Sides for the evening included roasted green beans and sweet potato fries.
I’ve tried and loved Alexia’s regular sweet potato fries and had high hopes for the spicy variety as well. They were a little too spicy for my liking, though a little bit of ketchup cooled them off enough for me to eat. I’m such a baby with spicy foods!
The underlying sweet potato flavor that I love was there and they cooked up perfectly in the oven. Slightly crispy and not too soggy!
After dinner, Ryan and I took Sadie on her evening walk.
She had a blast while Ryan and I discussed our finances. Oh, yes, it was thrilling!
And now it’s time for a family finance meeting. I’m going to try to stay awake for this one.
I mean, I have The Bachelor to watch at 8 p.m., after all.
