Alright, enough of the trivia and on with the food. Of course I had to throw in some green food for the kids, but I wanted to make some good ol' Irish food. I opted out of the Corned Beef & Cabbage because (gasp) I can't stand corned beef. I know, I know. My husband loves it, but everything about it just grosses me out. Soooo, instead we had the following (oh and I didn't mention that we had green eggs for breakfast):
- Oven Baked Fish
- Colcannon - a traditional Irish potato dish.
- Pot O' Gold Jello - lemon (yellow) jello jigglers made in ice cube trays and stacked like gold bars.
- Irish Soda Bread
- Ginger Beer for my hubby (I can't stand the stuff). It's not Irish, in fact its Caribbean, but the bottle was green and it gave us the feel for the Irish beer tradition without actually drinking beer...silly us!
- Sprite for the kiddies - those mini green cans were perfect!
