Roundup: 4 Things for St. Patty’s Day

Posted on by Jennie

Although you might not know it in LA, in Boston, where I went to school, St. Patrick’s Day was a big deal. And not just to drink, either, but to spend time with friends, to eat different foods, and to dye things green. We also had a roaring good time, and I look back on the mid-March holiday with a big smile on my face.

As we get closer, I wanted to point out some great recipes you can make to celebrate the day:

1) Corn Beef and Cabbage: PW has a delicious recipe for this classic dish that made my mouth water.

2) Irish Soda Bread: I’ll be posting my own on Monday, but for now, pine over this one from Ina. Make this to impress your family or coworkers, plus it’s basically a butter-slathered bread that’s acceptable breakfast food. Win-win.

3) Shepherd Pie: Check out this delicious recipe from Sips and Spoonfuls. This dish just warms you right up, and it goes great with a beer, too!

4) Dying things green: The Kitchn has a great guide to this, and we highly recommend trying out our Avocado Deviled Eggs to go along with a more natural themed holiday.

    I make colcannon. A traditional Irish dish that is mashed potatoes with leaks and cabbage. I am French Canadian so instead of leaks I often replace it with what we call “Herbes Salees” which is a herbs and carrots chopped very finely cured in salt. It is deeelicious!
