St. Patrick’s Day Robot: Slainte, Blarney Stone, Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe
Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone, let’s celebrate shall we?
Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone, I hope you are all wearing green. In preparation to celebrate I will run through what Slainte means for starters. Of course you will be hearing of the Blarney Stone today so I will give you a little background information on what it is exactly. Last but not least I will offer up a traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe so you can all celebrate the holiday, the right way!
First and foremost on St. Patrick’s Day 2011, you should all know what Slainte means. It is probably the most popular Irish term you will hear today and it simply means “good health.” The most common place of use is when drinking your beers/booze on St. Patrick’s Day you say “SLAINTE!” instead of cheers.
Next up is the famous Blarney Stone which is by far one of Ireland’s most popular tourist attractions. Tourists will climb several winding stairs to one of the highest points in Blarney Castle. They would then be lowered, on their backs in order to kiss the Blarney Stone. Of course, the killjoys over in Ireland are saying that this is not sanitary as thousands of people kiss the stone, leaving behind germs from their spit. I say if people want to kiss the Blarney Stone, let them, if they get sick they get sick…don’t ruin a tradition.
Last but not least is a meal everyone should eat on St. Patrick’s Day; Corned Beef and Cabbage! Of course there are going to be a ton of people looking for the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe and I have come across one that should hit the spot. I hope you all have a fantastic day today and you can find the Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe here.
