Food: Corned Beef and Cabbage Pie Altered

A Topic very difficult to avoid right now is the concern and fear over COVID-19, which is naturally on all of our minds . Even if we pretend a strong front, the worry about spreading the disease or contracting it, has become part of our daily routine, as we figure out ways to adapt to a new lifestyle.

The only thing I want to ask, is that we don’t freak out, nor become obsessed, but rather do our part through legitimate sources online to help contain the spread of the virus.

Not to say that I am downplaying the situation, but panic is the worst enemy in times of global threat or affliction.

For the time being I keep my family engaged in much cooking, and alternative conversations to help distract – and finding interesting recipes to consider fits both of my efforts.


    • 2 lb. russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 2″ pieces
    • 1 tsp. kosher salt, divided, plus more
    • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, divided
    • 1 head of Savoy cabbage
    • 3 thick-cut bacon slices (about 3 oz.), finely chopped
    • ½ onion, thinly sliced
    • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
    • 1 tsp. thyme leaves
    • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 large eggs
    • ¾ cup heavy cream
    • 1¼ cups coarsely shredded sharp cheddar, preferably Irish {more}

On another note – have you seen the film Leap Year? Just sayin’ a wonderful silly distraction if you happen to need one.
