St. Patrick's Day meal plan

Every year I tell myself I will make a St. Patrick's Day themed dinner in March, yet somehow March 17 always comes and goes with no corned beef with cabbage or festive green dessert. Well, my friends, I am happy to report that this year I made my St. Patrick's Day meal! It was terrific! And I even made it a couple of days early in case any of you might feel inspired to follow my lead and make your own Irish meal.

Here is what we served:

Corned Beef with Potatoes and Carrots


Irish Soda Bread

Grasshopper Bars

We also served a side of fruit. I will be posting the recipes, last one on Thursday (St. Patrick's Day) morning, so if you would like have your own feast, pick up these ingredients:
