Top of the morning to you my friends! Today is St. Patty’s Day and we’ll all be ‘wearin the green’. Although there’s no Irish in our blood we can’t help but celebrate.
Thoughts of Ireland, Leprechauns, gold coins, and luck are just a few of the things that make it such a fun holiday.
Not to mention the pinching thing of those not wearin the green.
The kids will be coming and we’ll all be eating a ‘wee bit of green’.
Our meal will be late in the day so I thought I’d share some of last years feast.
One of our favorite side dishes is Green Rice. It’s easy, cheezy and oh so yummy. I’ll share the recipe at the end of this post.
What would St. Patty’s Day be without a bit of fried cabbage? We like to mix it up a little each year. This year my daughter, Karrah is going to make the Colcannon recipe that was shared on SYC #48.
Last year she made these cute little pots of gold.
Corned Beef is a tasty meat that we only have once a year. Strawberry Spinach salad is another family fav.
Some green rolls and grass planted in a green & white glass bake casserole.
Wishing you all the ‘luck’ of the Irish throughout the year!
