Happy St Patricks Day

I had a grad class on St Patricks Day and I had signed up to bring in snacks so I wanted something in the holiday spirit. I made chocolate cupcakes with creme de menthe frosting. The frosting is the same recipe I used for the Creme de Menthe Brownies. I ended up needing to make this frosting recipe twice in order to have enough to cover 24 cupcakes. I thought I was going to get through all of them with one batch :) not quite!

Cream ¼ cup butter; gradually add 2 cups powdered sugar, and 1 to 2 tbsp of milk if mixture seems too thick to spread.

Because I had work and then class after work I wasn't going to be home until 8pm. I ran home during lunch and threw my corned beef meal in the crockpot and set it on low so it would have about 8 hours of cooking time. It was so yummy! We had some extra veggies afterward because my piece of meat was only about 2 pounds, not 3 as the recipe suggested. The good news is once St Patricks day was over, corned beef went on sale :) so I have one in the fridge for Monday

Here is the recipe I used
Corned Beef and Cabbage
