Hello and HAPPY FRIDAY!!! I am so excited it is Friday, I feel as if I never got into my groove this week, I was always running behind. So this weekend, I can regroup and start again on Monday.
Are you getting yourself ready for a few green beers and some corned beef and cabbage? Do you have plans for St. Patricks Day. I am Irish but I do not have any real plans to run out to celebrate. I will be making some tasty Irish Soda Bread, and hopefully some Colcannon if I can persuade my husband that potatoes and cabbage are better than corned beef.
As I will not be celebrating while walking the beautiful green hills of Ireland, I did peruse Pinterest and Food Gawker to find some great ideas for whipping up a St. Patricks Day feast. If you have followed my blog for even a little while you know that my taste runs toward desserts and sugar so before we get to the savory dishes lets get to the “main course”, after all isn’t there a saying…eat dessert first?

|Bailey’s Irish Cream Cupcakes|
You could celebrate with any one of these recipes. The Guinness cupcakes from Create Live blog are so EASY, a boxed cake mix and a 12 oz Guinness beer. Can it get any easier?
Or you could make the Bailey’s Irish Cream Cupcakes I made fa few weeks ago, they are delicious. Or perhaps a Grasshopper Cake or some sugar Cookies?
If you are thinking more along the lines of traditionalIrish food than perhaps an Irish Stew and some
Irish Soda Bread, this looks like a great recipe from Radmegan?

Or what about something different but also traditional Irish food, col cannon? It is basically mashed potatoes with the cabbage, lots of butter and ham thrown in the same pot. I have never made this dish but I want to try it this weekend. Of course there is always corned beef and cabbage or a Reuben sandwich.

And to drink, instead of Guinness Beer (sacrilegious I am sure) what about a Honey-Dew, Cucumber, Mint Mojito from the fabulous blog Thyme?
I am sure that there are many, many more recipes but these are a few that I would make myself. What will you be making for St. Patrick’s Day? I would love to hear some of you favorite recipes.
On a side note this weekend is my one year blog anniversary. I cannot believe that I had that much to say, OK wait I take that back, I always have lots to say once I know you, what I mean is, I cannot believe that I could write posts for a year.
Have a happy Friday, a happy Weekend, and a happy St. Patrick’s Day! Be safe on the road there are always lots of people that party too hard.
