Dia dhóibh (translation – Irish for Hello)!:
This weekend we will be ‘springing forward’ (Yay!), so it’s time to look ahead to all the greenery that will soon be blooming and flourishing. Speaking of greenery, St. Patty’s Day is right around the corner. Need some ideas? No worries. Just dust off your ‘River Dance’ skills and keep reading.
There are so many ways to celebrate the day. You can go the more traditional route and commemorate the religious origin of the holiday and top it off with a feast consisting of Irish stew, soda bread and Guinness cake for dessert. Can’t wait for Easter? Then, let your St. Patrick’s Day celebration double as a pre-Spring kick-off.
If you are in a climate where the temperatures are warm enough for outside activities, plan a backyard barbecue consisting of grilled corned beef, Colcannon, grilled cabbage wedges, and Apple Barley pudding. Of course, if you want to keep the eats basic and focus on the fun, you can’t wrong with delicious sandwiches like corned beef on rye and baked ham and cheese with assorted sides and drinks.
With so many ideas at your fingertips, you can have a perfectly planned St. Patrick’s Day party that will make your guests want to kiss you—whether or not your Irish!
