A corned beef and cabbage kind of day

In our opinion, it’s always a corned beef and cabbage kind of day! The official “Corned Beef and Cabbage Day” is March 17th, of course. You know it tastes good, but what exactly is it?

Corned beef corning refers to curing or pickling meat in seasoned brine. It refers to the “corns” or grains of kosher (or other coarse) salt that is mixed with water to make the brine. Typically, brisket is used to make corned beef.

Corned beef varies across regions with by its different seasonings. Did you know Irish immigrants adapted corned beef from their Jewish neighbors on New York’s Lower East Side as a cheaper alternative to Irish bacon? Another fun fact: smoking a corned beef, and adding extra spices, produces pastrami.

Just in time for your customers’ St. Patty’s Day feast, try our locally produced corned beef that has been in brine for 21 days, hand-turned each and everyday.

A salute to our drivers

It’s been a long, long winter. In fact, recent news stated that this has been one of the most depressing in Spokane in decades. I can contest to that. It’s beginning of March and I’m still looking at over two feet of frozen snow and 2 inches of fresh in my front yard. We’re all ready for spring.

What it’s been like this ‘past’ winter, I can’t help but think of (and always worry about) our heroic drivers who faithfully deliver to our customers every week day regardless of the road conditions. Narrow back streets of downtown, hilly Southside, icy Northside, and even enduring the treacherous narrow roads up to our local mountain ski resorts.

We all brave the drives in the white, deep, frozen, and berm bedded streets, the recent flooding filling the crater-sized pot holes, dogging as best we can so as not to have a blow out or get side-centered. But, can you imagine doing all of that defensive driving in a truck four times the size of a normal car?

So, this month I want to salute our fearless men who get behind that wheel every day. Without them Angus Brands couldn’t live up to our service promise. Congratulations guys – you made it through another challenging season.

With all my heart, thank you.
