I don't like the traditional foods.  But I like "green" cookies and such.Laughing

Hmmmm, we don't eat the traditional Irish foods often.  Now if you're talking Columbus Day....that's another story all together!!

We usually invite friends to join us for a traditional dinner.  We start off with a glass of wine.  My usual dinner consists of corned beef, cabbage, red potatoes, and carrots, along with a couple of whole onions for jazz up the flavor.  I also buy (or sometimes make) Irish Soda Bread.  Yummmmm.....can't wait for the 17th!!  Dessert is whatever I think would be enjoyed by most who will be here.  Most of our friends are chocoholics like we are.  That makes it quite easy to decide....either chocolate cupcakes or brownies.....iced with green icing, of course.

We usually have corned beef, cabbage and potatoes on St Patricks Day.  Hopefully before then the price of corned beef will come down since it is really expensive right now.  Otherwise I may have to rethink my plans lol.

I've made corn beef and cabbage several times.  My husband will eat it, but he is not fond of it.  I'll probably make something different.  Not sure what yet.

Nancy, next time try making a shortbread cookie.  It is "plain" but the taste is heavenly.  The best ones are buttery and have a nice crumb to them.  I love them dipped in Ganache...oops you don't make ganache yet .  If you want nuts can be added as well as crystallized ginger. I like Shortbread cookies better than "Spritz" cookies.

Shoertbread cookies are definitely yummy but I still like my spritz cookies -- of course I use real butter in mine and I notice the amount of all-purpose flour can make a difference too.  Cake flour makes a more tender crumb. 
Nancy, put a pecan half on top of one of the round shapes! lol.
I no longer make rolled out cookies so the cookie press is the way to go for holiday shapes.

I will put our corned beef, cabbage, onion, garlic, little red potatoes, carrots,
and 1 can of beer in the crock pot.  We will have soda bread with it. Last year
I made the bread and really liked it. Don't know what we will have for dessert!

Nancy, I can always count on you to see the dry sense of humor. Thanks for appreciating my pun.

It is funny that the Irish seem to have adopted the "traditional" boiled dinner. I've heard that it was English fare, but it does tast so good. My husband, who is Irish never liked it until I made it for him, and now it is a "St. Patty's Day" must. What do you make on Columbus Day?

LOL, we are Italians (well hubby is any way)! I'm "Italian" by marriage. It kind of sneaks into your DNA after a while! Columbus Day we hang our Italian flag, I make a big bowl of homemade meatballs etc.  Gotta love the 100% meataballa hubby!!
