You've got to make corned beef and cabbage in March. We like to make it in the oven instead of boiling on the stove so that the meat and vegetables aren't so waterlogged. And those leftovers make a mighty fine soup. Borscht may not be traditional for St. Pats, but it's a definite cool weather pleaser. Also search for our fantastic beef barley soup. It's homemade all the way and a lovely way to spend a cold dreary weekend day before springtime.
