St. Patrick's Day Ideas

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! I hope you had more time to plan for St. Patrick's than I did. Not that the date really snuck up on me, but I just didn't have much time to bake anything or plan any tasty treats for it. I do have plenty of ideas though, and it is not too late to whip something up! St. Patrick's Day seems to be a lot about the drinks, so green beer, Irish whiskey, grasshoppers, and creme de menthe always seem to be popular. But if you are looking for something a little fancier, try one of these ideas!

  • Meals: Corned beef and cabbage, bangers and mash, Irish mashed potatoes, lamb dishes, Shepherd's Pie, beef stew.
  • Side Dishes: Irish soda bread, reuben sandwiches
  • Desserts: Grasshopper pie, mint Nanaimo bars, 
  • Anything flavored with chocolate and mint: squares, cookies, pies, cupcakes.
  • Anything flavored with Irish whiskey or stout: cakes, brownies, cheesecakes.
  • Anything made with Irish cream: creme brulee, coffee bars, cheesecakes, tarts.
  • Cute Treats: Green leprechaun hats (flat cookies & marshmallows covered in green frosting), mini pots of gold (chocolate cookie shells filled with chocolate coins or candies), mini treasure chests
