Corned beef hash (recipe in the comments from March 17, 2008)
Turnip and collard greens

Today is St. Patrick's corned beef part two: hash. Hash is one of my favorite recipes. It's simple, flavorful, and easy to make. Our version is even quite healthy for you (not a traditional hash description). I made this and the greens today during T's nap so we could all eat together after church this afternoon. We didn't make it to church because the sudden appearance of the sun made us all long for a good walk, so we went to "mass" outside. The hash was enjoyed by all and was somehow even better than usual. I have two theories on that: 1) I cooked it ahead and recipes like hash often like to sit and have the flavors blend or 2) I made a larger corned beef than usual, so we actually had 3 cups of meat leftover this year (a rarity). Whatever it was, dinner was yummy.

Prep Notes
Difficulty: Easy
Chopping: Potato, corned beef, onion, peppers, parsley
Time: 35 minutes

J: "More excellent than usual!"
M: "Hearty and not that bad for you!"
