~ Today is St. Patrick's Day (3/17/11)! ~

Irish Soda Bread While I personally am not Irish, I do enjoy this holiday and Kitchen Encounters has posted some wonderful Irish recipes guaranteed to make your St. Patrick's Day a tasty one.  We started off our day this morning with my recipe for: ~ Irish Eyes are Smilin' on Mary's Irish Soda Bread ~, found in Categories 5 & 11.  It is pictured here served in the traditional manner:  toasted w/butter and jam!


For a warm and hearty lunch you might want to try some of my ~ Baked Potato, Roasted Garlic and Cheddar Soup ~, and you can find this recipe in Categories 2, 11 & 22. It is thick and rich and so full of the subtle flavors of bacon, garlic and cheddar everyone is going to want seconds.  I always make a big pot of this so I have plenty of leftovers for tomorrow!

Corned Beef #1 (Intro Picture) There is no question that my ~ Braised & Brown Sugar Crusted Corned Beef ~, recipe found in Categories 2, 3, 11, 19 & 20, will be on our dinner table tonight.  I'll be making deli-style sandwiches served on my ~ Crusty Caraway Seed Dinner/Sandwich Rolls ~, found in Categories 5 & 12.  I'm serving these with ~ My Favorite Potato & Egg Salad ~, which you can find in Categories 4 & 10!
