Since this weekend was the Farmhouse and Wild Ale festival, I decided that it might be time to get around to The Commons‘ special festival only release from 2016 called The Croze.


Corned Beef, Braised Cabbage with Slab Bacon, Fried New Potatoes with Dill Horseradish Cream

It was St. Patrick’s Day yesterday, and I did the usual Corned Beef and Braised Cabbage with Slab Bacon. Last year, I did the Duck Fat Roasted Potatoes but this year I did my mother’s Fried New Potatoes so I wouldn’t have to jockey with the two different oven tempeatures. I also made some Dill Horseradish Sauce.

I went with my last bottle of the Beermongers Anniversary Ale from The Ale Apothecary from the cellar.

Merguez Sausage with Black Olive Mayo, Harrisa Carrot Slaw, Feta and Arugula

Instead of using naan, like I did last time I made this, I went with the grilled flatbread they sell at World Foods.I used yellow carrots for the slaw and decided to add arugula this time. Also, when I went to my butcher for the merguez she said that she said that it had been made but not put into the casing. So, I made a shish kabab with the meat and grilled it.

I went with a bottle the Anniversary Saison – a mix of gin and wine barrel aged beer brewed with apricots – from Upright Brewing.
