One of the best ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day is to enjoy related foods. Shamrock sugar cookies to cabbage stew, there are a lot of options out there. You can aim for green food and drink all day or traditional Irish fare. I’m posting a lot of links to a lot of blogs with amazing recipes. But first, a quick list of how to spend your day in the Irish spirit.
Tint your eggs, or pancakes green. Green food dye or, if you are out of green, yellow and blue make green. Just a drop or so. If you are aiming for more Irish, make scones. Those can be turned green too.
Green apple, kiwi, or those scones I mentioned, green colored popcorn.
Make a stew, bangers and mash (which can be turned greed), shepard’s pie, soda bread.
Green colored cupcakes, cookies, green jello or green colored yogurt.
Green Sprite, Midori Sour, Mint Julep.
Ok, so those were the quick and easy ideas. Most of those are from packages or require minimal knowledge to make. Now that the ideas are flowing, here are links to satisfy any goal for your St. Patrick’s Day, whether you are aiming for authentic fare, green food or shamrocks shaped items.
