St. Paddy’s Day!

So March 17th is Dave’s favorite holiday, so we celebrate every year by having a party, eating some Irish fare and watching one of our favorite Irish movies!

No matter where we are,  we wanted to continue our tradition, so we invited some friends over to celebrate with us! Here was the menu:

Guinness Stew (with braised lamb) Both of these were great – braising the lamb really locks in flavor, and the stew was delicious!

Veggie Guinness Stew (Same recipe as above, no meat)

Irish Brown Bread (Homemade by me) This is an amazing recipe (and blog), and the bread comes together so easily!

Colcannon (thanks to our friend Marjorie!)

Irish Cream Cake for dessert 🙂

I did not take pictures of any of the food or the party, but I have linked to the recipes in case you want to try any of them! Along side this delicious food, we of course served Guinness for our guests 🙂

After enjoying some delicious dinner, we watched Darby O’Gill and the Little People.  Never heard of it? It’s an oldie but goodie Disney film that Dave introduced me to a few years ago, with a very young Sean Connery! Dave watched it every year when growing up on St. Paddy’s Day, and now we do too!

It was a really fun party and I cannot wait to do it again next year! (Maybe then I will remember to take pictures of the food and the party!) And thanks to our friends that came! Hope you enjoyed it!

    I suppose if he can’t go to Bert and Ernies with his mum and da having the best St. Patrick’s Day party in Qatar is the next best thing. Watch out! Next year there will be over 100 people at your party.
