St. Patrick's Day dishes
I'm a wee bit of Irish I am...!
I love St. Patrick's Day. Everyone is Irish that day and it's filled with fun, laughter, beer, everything green, and Irish food!
My Grandmother on my Dad's side was half Irish and half American Indian. My Great Grandmother Addie McClary migrated with her family from Ireland to Oklahoma during the Cherokee Land Strip run. Such great history there. I wish that my Grandmother had more Irish recipes from her mom and aunts. But I've still got a great collection of delicious treats for you to make.
I think I should explore that side of the family and their food a little more. Don't you? I'll put it on my ever growing 'to do' list to make some wonderful Irish dishes. Yep, that's what I'm gonna do.
We won't be here to celebrate this year but I wanted to leave you with some inspiration for celebrating with your own Irish feast.
St. Patrick's Day Cheddar Biscuits - Oh my these biscuits are good. Hot and bursting with flavor and cute shamrocks on top.
Pioneer Spotted Dog - One of my favorite breads. We like to have it for breakfast with hot tea.
Chocolate Bailey's Milkshake - A 'grown up' milkshake that will have you singing "Oh Danny boy"!
Potato Cakes - One these are one of my favorite items to make with left over mashed potatoes. I just love the flavor of these and could eat the whole batch myself!
Irish Stew - This will be warming your soul. Serve it with the Cheddar Biscuits above or the Pioneer Spotted Dog and you will have a meal to remember.
Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day!
