The party is TODAY.
Whenever it falls on a Monday, Tues, Web, Thursday, we have the party on Saturday just because it is easier to get all the family and friends together..
I actually came here today to post status reports while I am still able lol..
We began "corning" the beef
Starting Tuesday we began making the Baily's cheesecakes
making one a night.
Last night I made the Guinness Irish stew
and three loaves of soda bread
I got up at 8am and started the beer and Irish whiskey braised corned beef
and put about 20 - 25 pounds of it in the oven. I still had about 5 - 10 pounds of the corned beef left over that just would not fit, so I decided to make pastrami with it in the smoker, so that is going too.
My aunt is making up some Golumpkis
even though it isn't Irish, what the heck, it has meat and cabbage in it.
She is also picking up some fresh baked rye bread and making some other snacks.
We have been straightening up the house and getting everything ready for the party. We expect between 40 - 70 people so it aught to be fun.
Party is starting around 3pm EST.. Will try to get some time to pop in and give status reports.
