Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

green beerToday is St. Patrick’s Day and we are having Corned Beef & Carrots. Why do we only think of eating corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day?.  Maybe we should have it more often since I really like the flavor.  So look forward to some recipes using corned beef – maybe a version of the rueben or a casserole of some kind.

Of course everything has to be green, so why not add a few drops of green food coloring to  your beer  – Viola!  Green Beer.

*  St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17, the saint’s religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years. On St. Patrick’s Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink and feast–on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage.
