Okay, you don't have to worry about leftovers until the 18th, but since I will be otherwise engaged-let's talk about what to do with the leftover corned beef, potatoes, and etcetera.

Obviously there's good old-fashioned hash and eggs for breakfast.  But you can also do soup.  I'd use some vegetable stock to keep it on the mild side and since the beer flavoring is there, add another bottle of it.  Probably 4 C of stock to 1 bottle of suds will do just fine.

Use some fresh veggies.  In my house the veggies would be the first to go anyway (I mentioned that we're not fans of corned beef on Sunday).  I love soups like this because it's just "dump and heat".  Everything is already cooked, so this works out very well if everyone's hungry and in a hurry.

Use fresh carrots, celery, onions, red potatoes and shredded cabbage.  Let those cook for about 20-30 minutes before adding the leftover corned beef.  Now the next step is totally up to your own preference-you can serve it with some Irish Soda Bread and butter, as is-or you could thicken it up to make it more of a stew.  I usually use equal parts of cold water and corn starch, combined well and stirred into slowly to the hot soup.  Let it cook to thicken.  

Soda bread is a pretty easy quick loaf to do yourself, but during this week you will probably find some very nice ones in every bakery section of your local market-so why bother?

Until the 25th, Bon Voyage ladies!
