St. Paddy’s Day is almost near. The world is about to get greener by the day, not just a healthy environment but the lucky streak of the parades, the drink, the feast and the gathering of many people celebrating on Sunday. Unlike the early days, today’s St Patrick’s Day celebrations have been greatly influenced by those that developed among the Irish diaspora, especially in North America.
Until the late 20th century, St Patrick’s Day was often a bigger celebration among the diaspora than it was in Ireland. And the practice of dyeing the river green started in Chicago in 1962, when city officials decided to dye a portion of the Chicago River green. A simple Guinness won’t cut it. These seven simple and easy recipes that we have recently tasted will perhaps complete your day:
What makes these the ultimate? Well, it starts with a foundation of potato chips so you know it’s good. The cheese sauce is where things get interesting; this one’s made with Guinness and cheddar and a pinch of cayenne
These super simple Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage Sliders along with Guinness Mustard make it easy to join in the celebration, even if you can’t make the Dogtown Parade.
This is an ‘Irish’ way to deal with the leftover corned beef after the American corned beef and cabbage feast. With red potatoes with skins on, substitute ham for the corned beef, and leeks for the green onions, depends on what’s in the fridge.
Don’t be fooled. These aren’t ordinary twice-baked potatoes: beneath the golden mashed potato top is a rich beef and vegetable filling. And unlike your casserole dish, the potato bowls are also edible.
This is a perfect easy to make sweet treat for St. Patrick’s Day, or any time of the year! And it’s easy to make just a little bit healthier by adding low fat yogurt!
A spinach dip that can be warmed or used chilled. Either way it always vanishes at our place and the rave reviews just keep coming! After dip is finished, break off pieces of the bread bowl and enjoy the best part of all.
