st. patty’s day celebration

It keeps driving me nuts that the crazy photo of the chickens is at the top of my blog when you log on, so I decided it was time for another post. 🙂

Even though neither of us are Irish we do like to celebrate, so we held a little St. Patrick’s Day celebration at our house last weekend.  I made a few traditional Irish menu items including my first corned beef and cabbage, two loaves of soda bread (one white, one wheat) and homemade Irish Cream. Hannah brought over some fabulous Chocolate Stout Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache and Irish Cream Frosting for dessert. BJ made black and tans and served lots of Guinness.

It was a lot of fun, thanks to everyone who came to celebrate!

Gamers in action. It was a relay where you had to carry a gold coin in your knees and drop it in the bucket. Congrats to the Lynden girls who won!.

    My sister made Irish Soda bread a while ago:
    It’s hearty bread! I like it.

    The games sound hilarious! YEAH LYNDEN GIRLS!

    Your party looks like fun. Great job on the theme food and beverages! How was the corned beef and cabbage?

    The corned beef and cabbage was a hit! I had about 7 lbs. of meat and just a smidgen left over. I’ll give you the recipe if you want it!
