Spring is rapidly approaching with another excuse to entertain: St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) and the “wearin’ of the green” is a fun day to celebrate for Irish and non-Irish alike!
Though the typical Irish meal for St. Patty’s Day was boiled bacon and potatoes, Irish immigrants in the U.S. would use cheap meat that was tenderized with brine (corned beef) and slow cooked with cabbage, which became the traditional St. Patrick’s Day meal.
- Corned Beef and Cabbage
- Irish Soda Bread
- Dessert is a cinch with a large festive tray of gourmet cookies like the Chocolate Mint Eclipse Cookies
Now, hire a bagpipe player and you’re set for a fabulously green party!
