"Keep Calm and Get Your Irish On Party 2013"

Over the weekend that is exactly what we did! For the past couple of years, my friends and I celebrate all things Irish with one friend being the "Birthday Girl" around St. Patrick's Day. Also, it is a tradition I started many years ago to celebrate my husband's heritage as well. I armed myself with an Irish Cookbook _the one pictured _and learned how to make a traditional historical Irish Meal.

And added this book as well....

Now,there may be different dishes to feast on_But,the traditional Colcannon and Bacon are always on the Menu.This year it was Colcannon w/four different cheeses & Brussels sprouts instead of Kale,Lemon-Peppered Green Beans, a couple pounds of Nitrate-free Bacon,Herb cornbread muffins,Veggie Bowl(red,green,yellow peppers,tomatoes,celery & carrots)with a Heart of Palm Dip,Hummus Dip w/Pita chips,Castelvetrano whole green olives and a Cherry Lemonade...and WINE,WINE,WINE! Especially one called "Chicken Run Organic"...awesome! Dessert was East Texas Lemon TeaCakes & Fruit sorbet.While the Celtic music played _we were up to our usual antics_FUN! BTW_Heart of Palm Dip was a NEW dish for us,Delicious!
