I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy St. Patricks Day. I did not and am not making anything special  but I did not want to let this day pass without well wishes. Here are some images from last year. Hope you all have a wonderful day, with great food and drink! La Fhelle Padraig Sona Daoibh!

    to you, too, Suzanne! I think the best I can do is put green food coloring (please don’t judge 😉 ) in my kids’ milk today. Though Irish soda bread is delish, so maybe I can squeeze that in? Haha, had forgotten today was St. P day until I saw your post. Obviuosly no Irish blood here. You?

    And the soda bread, yum.

    Suzanne – sadly I wasn’t reading your blog last year so this is my first time seeing your brown bread – and wow – it looks fantastic!
    Hoping your hand is feeling better – Happy St Patty’s day!

  10. I’m not making anything special either, Suzanne. Nonetheless, I am so extremely grateful that at the moment, it is raining rather than snowing outside, and to be inside and warm and dry with all the animals. Very happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of you!

    March 17, 2014
    • I am so happy to see you here, a very Happy St Patricks day to you. Yes, rain rather than snow is a good thing for sure.

  19. Happy Belated St. Patrick’s Day to you too, Suzanne! FYI, did you know St. Patrick was Scottish-Italian (like me)? Your fact of the day!! 😉

    March 19, 2014
    • I didn’t know that, thanks so much Christina. I am Italian on my Fathers side and my Mom is French/Scottish/Irish. We have similar makeup!! Happy St. Patricks Day to you also.

      March 19, 2014

  21. Beautiful pics Suzanne! Happy belated St. Patrick’s

  22. YUM. I’ve never tried Irish soda bread but I think I need to! We celebrated by making a Guinness lamb stew with Colcannon. Aaron’s of Scottish/English descent and I’m English (though we both are well and truly Aussies now) so we have no Irish links at all but… hey, hopefully St Patrick would understand! We do have Irish friends and they appreciated it!

    March 23, 2014
    • Oh the lamb stew and colcannon sound delicious! I have a smidge of Irish on my Mom’s side so I try to channel that on St. Patricks day ! Thanks so much.

      March 24, 2014
  23. Ahhh pure comfort food – reminds of a trip to Ireland – Love the Irish coffee addition.

    March 24, 2014
    • Thanks so much Cindy, it’s such a great meal, the Irish really know their comfort foods!
