    I've done that in the past & loved it. But last year the price of Corned Beef had over tripled in all the local stores. I waited 'till the day after St Patrick's day hoping to get a sale, but everybody in town was out. One of the store clerks told me that they'd been out since 4 days before St Patrick's. Apparently everyone ordered way less that year. Maybe because of the price increase.

    This year I'll just bite the bullet & pay whatever they ask, a week ahead of time, so that I get some.

    I couldn't believe how much corned beef was last week. I don't think I've ever paid that much. I'll be watching to see if it goes on sale (and in the Boston area, it almost always does...it will be interesting to see if that changes this year).

    If it doesn't, I might just buy a brisket and make my own. I've been wanting to try it anyway :-)

    I am the only one in my house that likes corned beef and cabbage so I make a small one for me. I cook my cabbage by itself and add a little of the corn beef juice to it to give it some of the flavor. I like the corn beef by itself and love it on sandwiches. I don't buy it unless it is on sale.

    I've got a potato leek quiche in the oven right now. I used TJ's teeny tiny potatoes (I think they're a variety of Yukon Gold), caramelized onions and Swiss, with some Herbes de Provence (currently my favorite seasoning). The house smells great!

    I'll probably be eating quiche for lunch AND dinner.

    I usually cook the corned beef with the onions, potatoes... and then toss those out when the beef is done. (Usually by the time the beef is done... it seems the onions and potatoes have disappeared anyway). Then I add another batch of onions, potatoes and cabbage in the broth... and when tender I add the cooked beef to warm.

    Mine doesn't usually taste salty.

    Hmmm... I can't believe I am about to say this BUT... I have never looked at the price of corned beef. I just buy it. I couldn't tell you what is cheap or expensive. As.... I feel.. since I don't often make this meal, I just buy it at which ever store I am in. Now, I am curious to see just how expensive it is.... and will definitely check the different stores to see the comparisons.

    I have no idea. Reading all this- I feel even lazier today - but very very hungry

    If I ever get around to preparing it, we might have eggplant parm. Love the dish but it takes so long what with the slicing, egging, breading, frying, blotting eggplant slices, then assembling and then baking. I've tried baking, instead of frying, and it doesn't take much less time that way too. I don't like the taste of the frozen, pre-breaded eggplant slices.
