Good morning! Did you survive the storm? Hopefully everyone that lost their power has it back by now. We had a lot of rain and gale force winds other than that it was fine.
Friday is St.Patrick’s Day and I am curious do you celebrate the day? Or do you believe that only the Irish should celebrate? If you do celebrate, did you go to any of the parades? I have read that in Ireland it is a religious holiday and is spent celebrating St. Patrick and I do not mean at a bar. For those of you “in the know” please let me know.
|Corned Beef Grilled Cheese from Spicy Southern Kitchen|
I do not like corned beef and cabbage, I will eat a Rueben sandwich but I am not sure that it actually an Irish meal.
|Bangers and Mash from the Self Proclaimed Foodie|
I will be having Bangers and Mash. I could do without the bangers and just have a big bowl of mashed potatoes and stout onion gravy because creamy, butter laden mashed potatoes smothered in gravy are one of my favorite savory meals.
What about you? Do you celebrate with a traditional meal of corned beef and cabbage? Or do you make and eat something else? Will you be downing a pint or two of Guinness? I read that 5.5 million pints of Guinness are consumed a day, on St.Patrick’s day that number DOUBLES! That is a lot of beer.
|Nigella Lawson Stout Cake|
If you don’t want to waste your calories on savory food and beer than you could make Nigella Lawsons’ Stout Cake, it is fudgy, moist and delicious.
|Guinness Stout Brownie’s|
If you don’t feel like making a cake than I highly recommend these Guinness Stout Brownies, they are fabulous.
|Bailey’s Hot Chocolate|
Perhaps you want something a little “lighter”?” Than definitely try the Bailey’s Hot Chocolate, especially if you are still having cold and snowy weather.
Thank you for sharing your St.Patrick’s day recipes. I hope that you have a fabulous day.
