We just love to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. The Evans family history, my husband's gallivanting in Ireland for a semester, and friends and stories we continue to share today all add to the richness and fun of the holiday. I'll miss our usual celebration of visiting Mo's Irish Pub, the Harp, County Clare, seeing the Trinity Irish Dancers, and drinking some green beer (or Jameson or the Knot, if you are anyone but me). Next year we'll venture out with our baby. Maybe... :)
This year, we're doing this differently, but equally as exciting. We started a bit early this weekend making this non-traditional Irish(ish) meal. Our festivities continue on Thursday with a Gaelic Storm concert downtown! Can't wait!
A wee bit of something to drink (one alcoholic and one non-alcoholic, of course).
Reuben quesadillas. Thanks to a quick search I found this recipe.
A favorite of mine to bake for St. Patrick's Day - Ina's Irish Soda Bread.
