A St. Patty's Day Feast

Ah, St. Patty's Day. One of my favorite adopted holidays.

I didn't always celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Well, minus the occasional wearing green and a mention in passing at school. Then I went to college.

Apparently St. Patrick is the Patron Saint of Engineers, so, yeah. We had a 10 day-long party which involved things like the Greenest Person, lots of shillelaghs and walking sticks seen around campus -- mostly involved in "killing" little plastic snakes, painting the street green, oh, and the best yet, 2 days off from class. Just for St. Patrick's Day. I

Needless to say, I will always have a soft spot for St. Patty's Day. I'm not usually a huge let's-celebrate-every-holiday! person (ahem, Valentine's Day), but for this, I make an exception.

You should put this down for your menu Saturday night. The stew works perfectly -- simmering away for 2 hours, giving you ample time to become preoccupied with other things, such as how fast you really have to drink that Irish Car Bomb before it curdles. Or just make the cupcakes instead so there's no rush on the intake.


  1. Mini Irish Soda Bread? What a great idea! I just posted irish soda bread on my blog and yours looks very similar just mini haha. Looks like a splendid feast indeed!

  2. Your feast looks absolutely fit for the celebration :D
    Everything looks delicious!

  3. Oh goodness, this looks great! :) The mini sodas are so cute and the car bombs I must make asap!

  4. Stew with soda bread sounds delicious and mini soda breads sound even better. I just baked my first loaf but I love the idea of minis. Next year! :)

  5. Wow... your school sounds waaaay cooler than the one that my store is near where its just a lot.... lot of alcohol. That stew looks so perfect right now.
