St. Patrick’s Day
March 17

On the day of green, why not consume some corned beef and cabbage with some green beer! Sounds good to me. Did you know that while cabbage is eaten in Ireland, corned beef was used as a substitute for bacon by Irish-American immigrants in the late 1800’s. I love corned beef and cabbage. The only thing better is a corned beef sandwich with sauerkraut and thousand island dressing.

Who is bringing the soda bread and Guinness? Soda bread is a quick bread that uses baking soda instead of yeast for leavening. Guinness is the best selling alcoholic drink of all time in Ireland. I prefer my beer on the lighter side, but I can make an exception today.

What are your St. Patrick’s Day traditions?
