Hi Auntie Vera!

I love the music of Helen Reddy. That Ain't No Way To Treat A Lady is one of my favorite songs from her.Thank you for playing the music of Helen Reddy. Take Care. From The Good Humor Penquin.

Enjoyed the episode, however this was the first I'd heard of there being a traditional dish of corned beef and cabbage. All I knew was that it was a feast day rather than a specific meal.

Apparently, it's an Irish-American dish created by Irish immigrants to the US because corned beef was much cheaper than bacon there - I'd say that, and US bacon (pork belly) doesn't really compare well to the type we're used to (back bacon) ;)

Mind you, when you said "corned beef" my brain came up with the canned stuff and thought that would be a bit of a sad looking meal. Totally forgot corned beef also includes salted beef that can be much nicer than the type I initially thought of. Also, can't believe I never realised pastrami was a form of corned beef until now >.<
