Corned Beef Should Be Available All Year
I made a grave error yesterday when I left my parents' house after a delicious St. Patrick's Day corned beef and cabbage dinner without making a plate of leftovers. I could have been enjoying a nice corned beef and cabbage lunch right now as I type this.
I thought about going over to Stop and Shop to grab one (hoping they aren't sold out, yet). I got me thinking, why do we only eat corned beef and cabbage once a year? It's a delicious dinner, and it's pretty easy to make.
Corned beef should be available all year long. Change my mind. --Michael Rock
I'd put turkey in the same category. Why in the world do we only eat turkey once or twice a year? It's a crowd pleaser, it's relatively affordable, and it's pretty easy to prepare. Throw it in the oven, set a timer, and you're enjoying a turkey dinner in a matter of hours.
I was complaining about this on the air this morning when we received a direct message on our Fun 107 app from "fun107fan," who told us that corned beef was available all year long at BJ's Wholesale Club.
I also brought up the fact that few foods have a worse name than "corned beef." For a food that is so tasty, its name is pretty gross. It reminds me of corns on people's feet.

Nick from Wareham messaged us and told us that "It's called corned beef because of the salt they use to preserve the beef."
