Here's our St. Patrick's Day report. We had a fun celebration Sunday night with family and friends. You can find all the recipes here.
Our Irish heritage on my side. The kids got a quarter if they could memorize it.
Last week the kids went on a "green" hunt: they found green things all over the house and we put them in vases.
The food. Oh my. It was good.
Fresh limes sans sprite.
Josh smoked the corned beef this year. Best year ever.
Cashel Palace Brown Bread
I sauteed the cabbage in butter this year: Melt 1/2 cube of butter in frying pan, add about 1 T. water and 1/2 head of green cabbage, cut up. Cover and cook until tender. Add salt. It was so good that some people even had seconds! Crazy.
Dessert. We used this opportunity to celebrate Ben Blair's birthday. This Mile High Chocolate Cake was very good, but the frosting was CRAZY good. We also had lemon cake and Laura brought green filled OREOs, yum. (I want that recipe, Laura!)
The kids put on a play about a tricky leprechaun and Roxcy organized a game of find the shamrocks and pots of gold. It was a perfect evening.
