Monday feelings in Irish terminology:
I’m wrecked and could use a shoulder of whiskey in my coffee.
To be honest, if I were in Ireland I’m 99 percent positive I would be tipsy the entire time being that when you actually look up “common Irish phrases” about 50 percent of them are somehow related to alcohol (pre, during and post consumption).
The bad news is that I’m not in Ireland and I’m pretty sure I still can relate to the above factoid.
Anyways, someone sent me this little gif below and it made me laugh my arse off.
Literally my life summed up in a three second clip. Which could be borderline depressing depending on how you take it. Personally I find it to be borderline amaze-balls.
Perfect for the remaining month or two of this bi-polar weather (which I am pretty sure is making any manic actually feel sane) and conveniently posted before St. Patricks Day…… how sneaky of me.
Super. Easy. Very little chance of going arseways.
You may cut the cabbage into smaller strips if you like, I chose to keep them big for aesthetic purposes (wanted each ingredient to stand out).
Any dark beer will do for this recipe. The beer is key as it helps steam the cabbage AND thickens the meal creating a nice sauce with great flavor.
Also…. great make ahead meal! Just like most stews/soups (though this isn’t totally a stew) the flavor only gets better the next day. Just store in an air tight container and reheat on the stove. Or may leave on stove top (covered, for day of cooking/consuming) and just heat up when consumers arrive.
