Top O’ The Mornin’ To Ya

by Lisa on March 17, 2012

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya friends! Although if you’re actually in Ireland, you might just want to say “Good morning!” :) Are you doing anything special to celebrate today? Any fun green activities? Having any traditional Irish foods?

Turns out that even though I’m half Irish – I’ve been a little off on what’s traditional. Now in my defense, I grew up having corned beef and cabbage every March 17 and my mother’s family is Irish. In fact I’ll be serving corned beef later today! {I’ll skip the cabbage though; we’re having green beans.}

Corned beef was apparently exported by the Irish and more commonly eaten by the English. It was most likely popularized in our country by Irish-Americans. It would be more traditional to serve pork – like ham joint or boiled bacon. Other traditional Irish dishes to serve would be lamb stew, colcannon (a mixture of cabbage and mashed potatoes), soda bread, and of course Guiness. {I might simmer the corned beef in Guiness so then it should be more Irish.} :)

So let’s hear it – what’s on your dinner menu today?

Have a blessed & green St. Patrick’s Day friends!
