The only time I ever eat it these days is at a friend's house on the Friday evening before Saint Patrick's Day. It isn't my all-time favorite meal, but it's always delicious the way he has it, with cabbage, potatoes, carrots, celery, gravy, and other vegetables. It's usually on the lean side. I suppose all the nitrates and preservatives in it aren't that great, but it's worth it. When I was growing up, my family had it once in awhile, too.
