St. Patrick's Day will be here before you know it. This is one of my favorite holidays. I've had my house decorated for 3 weeks now and I'm getting anxious for the Big Day. If you come to my house and walk in that's were it all begins...You can see what my heart longs for....

I don't have all of my meal planned yet...This year I'm going to try a Crum-Crusted Corn Beef. I'm thinking my family might like it better than with the different veggies cooked with it. The side dishes to go with it will be Cabbage and Carrot Medley. This dish has a sweet sour taste to it using brown sugar, apple cider vinegar and spicy brown mustard. Also Mashed Potatoes with Celery Root, this dish is yummy. I'll be deciding what else to go along with this, in the next few days.

At my house will be celebrating St. Patrick's Day and the birth of my two granddaughters...Time to get a bottle of bubbly and pop the cork!

Would you good folks like to share what your plans are for St. Patrick's Day this coming Friday... biggrin.gif Maybe we can give one another some ideas on our meals or whatever!

I do fix lemon-lime kool-aid for the grandchildren.

Well, for me, I have a St. Patty's concert to go to on Friday. Senara's playing in it. Hopefully the following Saturday, I'll be going hunting. Otherwise, it'll have to be postponed for a week.

We'll see though...

Hi maggiemahone1,
if a stranger rings you doorbell on St Patty’s Day please invite him, because it will be me.
Have a great day.

Stuck for dessert? smile.gif
I almost wept when I found this. I'm going to make it myself:

Chocolate-Orange Guiness Cake

1 stick Butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups Soft dark brown sugar
2 cups Self-raising flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1 pinch Salt
2 rounded TBSP Hershey's Cocoa
Grated rind of 1 orange
4 eggs
1/2 cup Guiness Stout

ICING

1 stick butter, softened
1/2-2 cups confectioner's sugar
Large orange--grated rind & juice of

Preheat oven to 375F. Grease 2 8-9-inch cake pans. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa into a bowl. Add the orange rind to the creamed butter and beat in the eggs, one at a time, including a spoonful of the measured flour mixture with each one, and beating well between additions. Gently mix in the Guinness, a tablespoonful at a time, including another spoonful of flour with each addition. If there's any flour left over, fold it in gently to mix; blend thoroughly without over-beating. Divide the mixture between the tins, smooth down, and put the cakes into the center of the preheated oven. Reduce the heat to moderate (350F) and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the cakes are springy to the touch and shrinking slightly in the pans. Turn out and cool on a wire rack.

Meanwhile, make the icing. Cream the softened butter and icing sugar together thoroughly, then blend in the grated orange rind and enough juice to make an icing that is soft enough to spread. When the cakes are cold, use half the icing to sandwich them together, and spread the rest on top. Servings: 4


Have a beautiful, blessed holiday with the family and the two wee ones!

If you haven't already, go read in the Alternative Perspective thread... Think it's something everyone should see...

John, there's always room at my table for anyone that should fancy a home cooked meal....You may have to bang on the door...so I can hear ya.' It's gets really noisy when my family gathers for a celebration. The wee ones are running around and the women are talking about the menfolk and the men are talking about us women wink.gif but we have a dandy ol' time!

I went there and I read.... I read this same thing last year....I'm sorry that this man has such a negative attitude about St. Patrick's Day...I do my thing and what the next person does or doesn't do is his/her business.

I'm still wearing my green! biggrin.gif

I had corned beef and cabbage and then saw George Thoroughgood and the Destroyers and the Orange Peel club in Asheville NC with my father in law and brother (whom just recently returned from Iraq for the second time) it was a good night

Tasty cake and new babies. Does it get any better than that?

(Hope it came out well -- the cake that is. I had to make another one because I "tested" the first one myself almost into non-existence! tongue.gif )
birddog -- glad your brother's home.
