St. Patrick's Day

March 15th, 2006, 09:40 PM
Anyone have any favourite St. Paddy's Day recipes? I have a corned beef brisket but I'm not sure whether I want to go traditional corned beef and cabbage, or try something different.

As usual, I stocked up on Irish beers, I made shamrock cookies, I will be making soda bread tomorrow.

Anyone here have an irish heritage? (my dad's is irish, and my mother's father is irish, so I'm 3/4 irish).

I'm about 1/8 Irish... I think. We still can't find our ancestry over there though. When I was in Ireland, I found it funny how the only people who really celebrate st-patty's day are the tourists.:D

hahah. My friend is in Durham England right now and her husband is Scottish. She said they celebrate it a lot where she is! I kinda think it's more for the people who aren't in Ireland anyway...celebrate ireland at home kinda thing.

Yeah, it's for the Irish at heart. All that green food coloring though... that's gotta mess with something...:D

I"m of Irish heritage and right now I"m having an Irish coffee and it tastes great!!

An Irish toast:

May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you’re dead

May those who love us love us.
And those that don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping.
