I know it’s not one of the BIG holidays, but does anyone out there make anything special for St. Patrick’s Day?

smile  Of course Dan… I should have known better smile

Sadly, one of our children was born on St. Patrick’s day and HATES all the traditional items usually served.  So she has requested fried chicken and apple pie - how un St. Patrick’s Day like!  Oh well, it’s her special day, so fried chicken and apple pie it will be!

I am not Irish.  I corn my own beef using the recipe that appeared in Cooks Illustrated some years back.  While my family kind of didn’t know if they liked it or not the first few bites, the more they ate, the more they agreed that it was better than store corned beef. I don’t eat corned beef, so I don’t know what they meant, LOL.

And of course, Irish Soda Bread!  I got the recipe I use from a co-worker about 25 years ago, her mother came from Ireland.  It always gets rave reviews, and anyone that’s made the recipe after I’ve passed it on to them has also raved about it.  It’s a richer bread, made with egg and no whole wheat flour as opposed to lean whole wheat varieties.
