Nevertheless it the corned beef was the best we have ever had, it was tender, lean and tasted like pot roast! The main chef cooked 73lbs. of corned beef and a bushel of cabbage, a bushel of cabbage.

Couple of Minor Issues
1. It has been a full 63 hours since the Church's St. Patrick's Day Supper, i.e. corned beef, cabbage, boiled potatoes, carrots, soda bread, desserts, and the table of Irish Coffee. I mention this because 63 hours is not an adequate passage of time to disseminate the stench of cooked cabbage! Some Episcopalians and some Catholics have incense; we Baptists of Celtic roots have cooked cabbage! The Sunday following the dinner is really horrendous, you walk into the sanctuary (which is directly above the dining hall - by the way my office is directly above the kitchen) and a wave of sulfurish odor almost knocks you down. Luckily yoga was canceled last night b/c the instructor was ill, can you imagine practicing deep breathing with that smell!
