St. Patty's meal for those of you that don't enjoy corned beef!

This was great! Very traditional Irish-tasting. We actually didn't use lamb at all - used ground meat alternative instead (we're vegetarian). Good comfort food. We loved it as our main dish for St. Paddy's. DH's only complaint was that it had no garlic - he likes garlic in EVERYTHING. Thanks Rita!
