I think we are on our 28 year of this. Biggest difference this year, I got smarter on my beverage consumption. Nice head this morning. The crowd thinned out a lot earlier as well. Just gave the dogs all the fat trimmings and bagged up the leftovers. Boiled for 4 hours then put rutabagas, carrot, turnips, potatoes, and cabbage in the Broth. Once rutabagas were soft added the cabbage last. Wife uses the broth with some corn starch to make a “white” gravy to put over everything.
Biggest issue is I didn’t have my Dad this year, but Mom and Mom had some good quality time and the girls gave them some of their vodka laced gummy bears. It was good to see mom laugh some.
Nice that your mom had a few lighthearted moments… and I’m sure y’all made a few toasts in dad’s honor too
I like seeing the huge meals y’all cook, that looks right up my alley. My dad’s mom was Claire Sullivan, she was my 100% irish Nana and the only grandparent I ever knew, and now my older daughter carries her name.
I could eat eggs, potatoes, cabbage, and beef for the rest of my days… sláinte!
