St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Yesterday I made green cupcakes, [the recipe is coming for you tomorrow] today I made potatoes, cabbage and corned beef.  

I love oven roasted food.  Partially because my stove looks like this:  
Yep, that's right.  I do all my cooking on one burner.  And it's been like this for a few years.  So, I love doing things in the oven because I can cook 2 or 3 things at once.  Plus, the oven is a "set-it-and-forget-it" way to cook. 

I found the recipe on Pinterest for the cabbage.  It comes from a blog called Green Lite Bites
Pardon the sad plate.  I was starving so I snapped a quick picture

Packet Oven Roasted Cabbage

1 head of cabbage
Pan Spray
herbs and spices of your choice

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Rinse the cabbage and remove the bad leaves
  3. Quarter the cabbage (cut in half and then cut the halves in half, along the core)
  4. Lay each quarter on a piece of aluminum foil
  5. Wrap and bake for 20-30 minutes (if you like it softer then bake longer.  I actually baked mine for close to an hour)

Roasted Creamer Potatoes

Creamer potatoes (I didn't weigh mine)
Pan Spray 
Herbs and spices

  1. Clean and scrub potatoes
  2. Put them in a large pot and cover with water.
  3. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to simmer for 10 minutes
  4. Preheat oven to 425 while potatoes are boiling
  5. Drain and put potatoes on a large baking sheet
  6. Spray again with pan spray and then sprinkle on herbs and spices
  7. Roast for 20-30 minutes until crispy on the outside and soft in the middle.
 I ate almost a whole head of cabbage I think.  Luckily cabbage is pretty low in calories.  What did you have for dinner?  The traditional corned beef and cabbage or something unique?  

Oh, and by the way, I'll have a cabbage soup coming for you....I made WAY too much cabbage tonite.
