Pilsner Glass and Irish Pilsner Beer
Celebrate St. Patty’s day with a great Irish Pilsner Urquell, and enhance its taste by drinking it from our Pilsner glass. Both are on sale this week at Nugget. We have found that this Pilsner glass is great for serving many types of light lagers and wheat beers. Tall, with an inverted cone shape that focuses the hop aroma of a beer, it allows for zesty carbonation and a robust head.

Featured Recipe: Kathy's Corned Beef
Even when I was away at college, on St. Patrick’s Day I had to have my mom’s Corned Beef and Cabbage. I would always call her for the recipe, but now she has allowed me to give it to Nugget’s loyal guests forever. It’s simple, easy, and delicious, and the smell always reminds me of home.

Black and Tan? Or a Half-and-Half?
It’s March and another St. Patty’s day is just around the corner. In preparation for our favorite Irish holiday, we’d like to clear up a little controversy:
What is a Black & Tan?
And what is a Half-and-Half?
The answer depends on whom you ask. The all-Guinness Black & Tan is Harp's Lager and Guinness. (Harp's is brewed by Guinness at Dundalk.) Many consider the classic Black & Tan to be Bass Pale Ale and Guinness. (Some Irish folks say they appreciate the fact that the Irish comes out on top!) However, Bass Ale is not as widely available in Ireland as it used to be, and either Harp or Smithwicks is generally used as a substitute. There are also many variations involving a stout or porter and another lighter colored beer, either lager or ale.
A half-and-half is often just another name for a Black & Tan. However, in many North American Irish pubs, the Bass/Guinness combination is called a Black & Tan, while the Harp/Guinness combination is called a Half-and-Half.
Either way, we have all the beers necessary for making your own “Black and Tan” on sale for St. Patrick’s Day at Nugget Markets. – Brian Madden, Associate Director of Adult Beverages
Ireland's most famous blue cheese was named after the Rock of Cashel. When young, it is firm, moist and fresh, with a slightly sharp flavor. As it ages it becomes creamier, with a more round and mellow flavor — a favorite in cooking.
Top of the mornin’ to you! Corny, we know, but you can start your St. Patty’s Day morning off the Irish way with a breakfast of John McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal and Twining’s Irish Breakfast Tea. The oatmeal makes a great Irish porridge (find the easy directions on the package), and the strong black tea is best taken with milk and sweetener.
For an oatmeal recipe that twists tradition try our Steel Cut Oats with Balsamic Fig Reduction featuring McCann’s Steel Cut Oats. This recipe features a sweet and tangy balsamic-honey reduction in lieu of the oft-favored brown sugar.
Health Notes with Dr. Liz
You know oatmeal is good for you, but chances are you don’t know just how good it is for your health. Over the past two decades, reams of scientific studies have examined how a simple bowl of oatmeal can boost your health by warding off a variety of age-related ailments.
- A daily bowl of oatmeal has been shown to lower circulating cholesterol levels and cut risk for heart disease. The soluble fiber in oatmeal helps block the entry of cholesterol into your system.
- Eating oatmeal also helps regulate blood sugar levels — great news for diabetics. The soluble fiber meters the entry of sugar into the circulation, which prevents a rapid rise in blood sugar and potential artery damage.
- Weight control is another benefit of including oatmeal in your daily fare. The soluble fiber “swells” in the stomach creating a feeling of fullness. Studies show that adding foods rich in soluble fiber like oatmeal helps reduce appetite and aid in weight loss.
- Oatmeal provides complex carbohydrates that your muscles use for fuel during activities and B vitamins that work in the body cells to release energy from the foods you eat.
All varieties of oatmeal – steel cut, old fashioned, quick-cook and instant contain soluble fiber and complex carbohydrates. But steel cut, which takes the longest to prepare, is richest in soluble fiber. Top your bowl of oatmeal with berries, a small handful of nuts and a dollop of low-fat yogurt for a power breakfast!
