Beer at breakfast?
What a Crew... I meant, Clan!
Inspired by the revelry, I'm having a "should've, could've" moment, wishing I had pulled off an Irish Dinner Party. Here's what I would've done.
Dark delicious bread cut in triangles and layered with smooth Irish butter and topped with smoked salmon.
Shepherd's Pie and side salad served with Guinness and Cider.
A cheeseboard featuring Irish cheese and Irish Coffee
OR I would make something fantastic from the delightful book, "Supper for a Song: Creative Comfort Food for the Resourceful Cook by Tamasin Day-Lewis (yes, sister to that HOTTIE Daniel). Besides having one of my favorite sayings as the title, it is well timed for the recovering economy. She teaches how to use what we have in our pantry to create yummy meals. It comes out 3/23 but the I was privy to the galley and really blown away.
I end this St. Paddy's Day with a toast to you readers with a favorite Irish saying "As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point in the wrong direction."
