How to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day: In 4 Easy Steps

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. Can you believe that in all almost thirty years of my life, I've never celebrated St. Patrick's Day?

Castles of Leinster: Trim, Meath, Mike Searle

 I decided this was the year that would change. So I enlisted four awesome authors/bloggers to write guest posts about how they celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

This week you'll be hearing from each of them on my blog. Here's hoping you get some great ideas and I'm excited for my first year celebrating St. Patrick's Day.

In the meantime, check out this recipe for Irish Soda Bread. I hear it's not completely authentic Irish, but it looks delicious.

  1. Oh, fun! My family always celebrated St. Paddy's, but then I married into an Irish family and they REALLY celebrate St. Paddy's. Corned beef, cabbage & potatoes, rye bread...the works. And you had better wear green or else. We also fondly remember that Patrick himself was English, and God used him anyway ;-)

    1. Sounds fun. :) Any favorite recipes for those things?

  2. Some of my ancestors come from Northern Ireland. I make Irish soda bread often. So for St. Patrick's Day we will have corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, onions and carrots, Irish soda bread. Irish coffee for dessert.

    1. Sounds delicious! :) Do you cook the corned beef in the oven or on the stove top? I want to try it this year, though I must say I don't even know exactly where to buy it.

    2. Corned beef and cabbage is on sale everywhere right now. I cook it on top of the stove. The way the flavors blend is incredible.
