May your glass be ever full...

Got any big plans for today? None here. I'll probably wear green...I know you're thinking, "Good gosh, woman, slow down with the craziness! PACE yourself, for crying out loud."

That is sage advice and I will definitely take it into consideration.

Are you looking for something to make different from Corned Beef and Cabbage? Last year I posted Donal Skehan's recipe for Guinness and Beef stew after I caught him on the Today Show. It looks amazing.

According to National Geographic, On any given day 5.5 million pints of Guinness are consumed around the world, but on St. Patrick's Day, that number more than DOUBLES to 13 million pints!

Speaking of Guinness (still)... Guinness and Baileys Jello Shots!

Did you know that Corned Beef and Cabbage is an Americanized dish? Me either. Apparently corned beef was considered an expensive delicacy in Ireland. Anyway, read more about it here and check out the recipe for a St. Patrick's Day Casserole...Mmmm, I'm getting hungry.

Homemade Shamrock Shake anyone?

How about downloading a St. Patrick's Day app? Yes, there's an app for that!

Lots of great St. Patrick's Day history and bits of trivia.

Have a great day, and I'll talk to you soon.


  1. That stew looks wonderful and I just so happen to have some Guiness on hand and some fresh soda bread (sadly store bought, but good). Nice St. Patrick's Day post - I love the app.

    1. Oooh, sounds delicious. Happy St. Patty's Day, Alex.

  2. What a great list of fun ideas.

    We're going to a winery today. Then it's Scrabble and drinks with friends before we come home and make bangers and mash.

    Happy St. Patty's Day!

    1. That sounds like so much fun, Juju. Happy St. Pat's to you too.

  3. Happy belated St. Patrick's day - I hope you had a good one!
    I can't face Guinness since being forced to drink it while pregnant! How times have changed - now people are advised not to drink while pregnant but back in the 70s it's was actively encouraged!
