Corned beef with parsley sauce.. so yummy!!

Our first Corned beef was a great success. As it turns out I do own an Irish Cookbook.  Yes, I do.
The Country Cooking of Ireland by Coleman Andrews is a beautiful cook book. Lavish pictures, great in details recipes explanations, wonderful anecdotes.
I choose to make Corned Beef with Parsley Sauce, Colcannon , Cabbage and Broccolis in Butter. And of course let’s not forgot my favorite beer, Murphy’s Stout.
Really nothing to it to prepare and yet dinner was great.
To all have a great evening.
