My BF just swore off cow. See, he's Hindu and him eating beef was somewhat contradictory to his religion. So much for that.
I have no problem with this at all. Of all foods, I can do without beef easiest. And he's already told me it doesn't bother him if I feel the need to indulge now and then myself - so all is well.
However, St. Patrick's Day present's a problem. I had every intention of cooking us a typical meal which of course could consist of corned beef as the main dish.
We love corned beef, and I rarely make this, let alone I'd never made it for him. I was even going to do it from scratch this year. Being as my background is most definitely not Irish, and he isn't well versed in the food end of his heritage; neither of us can come up with an alternative dinner idea for that night.
So, I leave it to you brilliant folks to come up with a different game plan, something which will be very Irish, but not a cow. Anything else goes, we both eat everything else you can think of.
