Happy St. Patrick's Day

>> Wednesday, March 17, 2010

Ah, St. Patrick's day. For some it means the celebration of St. Patrick, for other it means debauchery, and for my Mother it means her favorite day has arrived. She has been sending me email updates about this day since March 18th, 2009. 

In honor of my dear mother Auddie, here are some great traditional Irish recipes taken from Irelandseye.com:

Potato Soup - The basis of a good soup - especially a simple soup such as this - is a good stock.
Apple Jelly - This well-flavoured jelly is very easy to make and will keep -if given a chance.
Beef in Guinness - The Guinness in this recipe has the same function as the wine in Coq Au Vin.
Boxty - Boxty is a traditional potato dish, celebrated in the rhyme. 

Whether it's with Guiness or a potato I am wishing everyone a very safe and happy St. Patrick's day. 

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
