Top ‘o the Morning to you and yours! We’ve been getting excited about St. Patrick’s Day around here. (It’s hard not to, living so close to Boston.) Whether you hail from the Emerald Isle or not, it’s always fun to have a good excuse for celebrating! Last week I shared some fun ideas for rainbow-hued treats and eats with you, but today it’s all about hearty, comforting foods inspired by Irish favorites. Corn beef and cabbage happens to be my favorite St. Patrick’s Day recipe and my mom makes a yummy version in the crockpot. I can’t wait for it this year!
We’re talking about corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, and meat pies. I’ve found enough recipes to help you celebrate all day long on March 17th. Hold on to your arteries, folks, because these meals are not for dieters! So, obviously….you’re going to love these ideas for mealtime celebrations of St. Patrick’s Day.
