Looking for recipes for st. patrick's day (traditional)

Looking for straightforward recipes for corned beef. Maybe a little something different, but not too different (we have some elders coming, so nothing too experimental) for the cabbage and potatoes.

I cook my corned beef with some Guinness, and I let it cook slowly in the crockpot. I am from an Irish family north of Boston and we always boiled the corned beef and then saved the broth and added it to the veg. The Guinness is a nice touch, but if you use extra stout only use half a cup for a four pounder.

Roast leg of lamb! Much more Irish than corned beef.

Forget what the bars do, serve good Irish beer WITHOUT any green dye. And/or Irish coffee for dessert.

These are all good. If you don't think the elders will have a melt down, you might want to try the Suspiciously Delicious Cabbage or Golden Colcannon Pie. (Traditionally, you make colcannon the day after, to use up any leftover potatoes and cabbage, but what the heck.)

And no St. Patrick’s Day is complete with Peggy’s Authentic Irish Soda Bread :-)

p.s. Although you don't normally serve soda bread at dinnertime. Just potatoes. But hey, I won't tell!

For potatoes, I love to make champ. It's definitely traditional, but it's a lot tastier than plain boiled potatoes. They are loads of recipes on the internet, but the gist of it is mashed potatoes with scallions. Colcannon -- potatoes and cabbage -- is another option, although I personally prefer champ.
