How was your St Patrick’s Day? Mine involved some things that were Irish, like this
And things that were more Irish-ish, like this
The car bomb cupcakes! I used this as a basis, only I did a boxed mix for the cake. Sometimes, it’s ok to be lazy. (boxed mix, you follow directions except sub in Guinness for the water… simple!)
Some of our meal was true Irish food, like this:
(That would be Calcannon, which is mashed potatoes and cabbage. The fiance told me he’d eat cabbage if it was hidden in something, and it was true-he loved this! I added a little bacon too. No one can say no to bacon)
We had some sides that were more… ish.
Neither of us are the biggest soda bread fans, so I just did a rustic-ish loaf of yeast bread and called it good.
The whole meal:
Carrots and colcannon? Irish. corned beef? Ish.
Car bomb CAKE. There’s a layer of whiskey ganache in the middle. Delicious.
Possibly the best use of the magic bullet yet!
Please note-there was no green beer. Because that sounds gross.
Although I guess my mama added food coloring to white wine. That I might be able to get behind…
