So the corned beef and cabbage yesterday was too good. I really love the cabbage more that any of the rest of the meal. This morning not one ring would fit on my fingers so I know I didn't reduce that sodium by as much as I wanted to. Guess if you cook the potatoes in with the meat to pull the sodium out, well then, you shouldn't proceed to eat the potatoes which are then loaded with the sodium you pulled out of the. . . etc etc and sodium.
Today, winter has returned at least temperature wise. It is barely 35 and howling wind but the sky is blue so when your face freezes off you don't feel quite as gloomy. Works for me. Have a Happy St Patty's Day.
