TBT ~ Linguini & White Clam Sauce ~ Rick ~ Slow Cooker Corned Beef & Guinness

Good 30º who knows what today will bring morning. Yesterday we hit 71º and it was such a beautiful day. Hopefully today will be the same as I HAVE to mow the grass!!!!

Today being TBT, Throw Back Thursday... here's a couple of oldies......  Jerry with Brian Dennehy... at the ELA Sheriff's Range in 1986. Nice man!! He was there filming a movie.

Same year Fred Dyer was at Wayside filming for his Hunter TV show.... with my Brian!

Ok, here's a delicious yummy recipe... made it dozens of times....
Linguini & White Clam Sauce
    by Rachael Ray

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 t. red pepper flakes
4-6 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated
6-7 anchovie fillets
2 T fresh thyme leaves, 4-5 sprigs stripped .. or 1½ t. dried
1 cup dry white wine
1 cup clam juice
1 can fancy whole baby clams
1 lemon, zested
1 pound linguini, cooked, drained
1/4 cup chopped parsley leaves
lots of black pepper and some sea salt
Crusty bread for mopping

Heat a large deep skillet over medium heat and add about 4 turns of olive oil in a slow stream, red pepper flakes, garlic, and anchovies. (Anchovies do not remain whole...they "melt" into the hot oil and impart a 'nutty' flavor...not fishy or salty!) Cook until anchovies are melted into oil. Add thyme and wine. Reduce wine 1 minute. Add clam juice and stir in clams and lemon zest. Drain pasta and add to skillet. Toss and heat with sauce 2-3 minutes .. until pasta has absorbed some of the sauce and flavor. Add parsley, pepper and salt, to your taste and serve with bread for mopping up the remaining juices. AWESOME!

All I know. Happy Thursday. In a few days all of you who are not Irish, will be! A reminder, if you are cooking your own corned beef for St. Paddy's... put it in the crockpot and cover it with Guinness beer! OMG. Makes the BEST corned beef ever!
St. Paddy's Day Corned Beef

4 # corned beef
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 large can or bottle Guinness Draught beer

Place corned beef in crockpot. Rub the brown sugar on the entire corned beef, including the bottom. Gently pour the beer around and gently over the beef to wet the sugar. Cook on low for 8-9 hours.

You can add in the cabbage/potatoes/carrots with the brisket about an hour before it's finished cooking or cook separately.

Thanks for the reminder that I need to go to the market and buy several corn beef roasts while they are on sale. Just love that meat. I will cook it in the crock.
We have all kinds of beer but no Guinness. Does it have to be that brand?

Well, Trish, Guinnes is Irish beer and the dark draught is really the best. Just buy a large can of it... xo

We just got a slow cooker and that corned beef sounds amazing.
