For the holidays, our tradition is to explore different recipes related to that special day. We tend to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day because it’s so close to my birthday and my partner is Irish. This year, I’m making Shepherd’s Pie, Irish soda bread, and blackberry custard with liqueur for dinner. I picked up a cappuccino stout to go with, too, and will likely be diving into Skyrim after the work day is done.
We’d definitely like to visit Ireland some day and visit with friends and family. The island has a rich history and, like many countries, I’d like to read more about it. Funny how the holiday has changed so much from its 17th century origins as a religious feast day (there used to be a LOT more of these) to a pseudo-celebration of the Irish culture. That’s what time and our ever-expanding civilization does, I suppose!
Hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!!!
