Titles Are For People Who Are Not Really Cranky Right Now

You know that thing, where you're not sick. You're not. You don't have any real symptoms, you're not coughing, you're not sneezing, but you feel really, really ick all the time?

That's me for the past week. I guess I should be glad it's not a full-blown cold, but instead I'm just being a Miss Cranky Pants and wishing I was in bed eating chicken soup (preferably made by magical elves who would also do the dishes after they finish making the soup) and watching some TV.

Sadly I do not have magical elves. But I do have a crockpot. If anyone has a good, easy recipe for some comfort food, I'd love you forever and ever.

Irish-American tradition. YUM.

Place in crock pot in order:

3 carrots, cut in 3 inch pieces
3-4 lb. corned beef brisket
2-3 med. onions, quartered
1-2 c. water
1/2 sm. cabbage, cut in wedges

Add cabbage to liquid, pushing down to moisten, after 6 hours on low or 3 hours on high. Cover and cook 10-12 hours on low, 5-6 hours on high.

To prepare more cabbage, cook separately in skillet. Remove 1 cup of broth from crock pot during last hour of cooking. Pour over cabbage wedges in skillet. Cover and cook 20-30 minutes.

Well, I have a crock pot and magic elves. But, alas, no recipe.
