I almost always make corned beef & cabbage, but want something different this year. I was thinking champ, but I don't know what else.
What's on your St. Pat's menu?
DH is pouting once more this year about the fact that I won't make corned beef and cabbage. Never really liked it so not interested in putting all that effort into it. Years past I've made shepard's pie but this year I'm switching it up and making fish and chips. I like the idea of a green dessert (who am I kidding, I just like the idea of dessert ), gonna have to think about that one. Saw a recipe for green velvet cupcakes on Food Network today....
This is our first year doing anything for St Patrick's Day (we just got home from a vacation in Ireland). We're having guiness corned beef, colcannon, brown soda bread (a recipe a friend from Ireland shared with me that's been passed down in her family), and I'm not sure what we'll do for dessert yet. I think lamb stew with soda bread would be a great treat as well. . .mmmm, or the fish and chips. I had one dish in Ireland that was like colcannon with bacon rashers on top of it. . .it was my favorite thing I ate there. You could even do a traditional Irish Breakfast for dinner. . .that would be fun!
Irish breakfast for dinner would be fun! For those with allergies, Gluten Free Girl just posted a gfree soda bread.
yep, we do corned beef and cabbage as well. This year it was our "do over" from New Years. Our tradition is to have corned beef and cabbage on new years for good luck for the year. So far, that hasn't worked out so well this year. So, we had to have a "do over" and make sure EVERYONE ate some corned beef and some cabbage, even if they didn't like it lol Hopefully now the rest of the year won't be so bad.
