Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all you Irish Lovers out there! A friend recently asked me how the celebration of the green leprechaun has become akin to that of the Super Bowl? I had to think of the dark days of Lent and the “free pass” you get on St. Patty’s Day. Indulge in senseless guilt-free frolic. Wear green, act silly, eat corned beef.
The part about “guilt-free” goes one step further if you take the classic rueben sandwich, our favorite Saint Patrick’s Day fare, and make it with Turkey Pastrami! I decided to share this recipe because it’s my family’s all time favorite sandwich. We don’t actually eat very many sandwiches at all, but ask and we’ll tell you that not a single of us can resist the temptation to enjoy a rueben sandwich – whenever the opportunity presents itself!
It’s WHY I LOVE ST. PATTY’S DAY!!!
