Spending a day with Irish Tradition
Posted on March 15, 2010

Now that we’re working adults, St. Patrick’s Day has a different meaning than it did when we were younger. Here are a few tips for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, from breakfast to dinner, and everything in between.

Top O’ the Mornin’ to ya

There’s no better time to try something new than on a holiday, so why not start St. Patrick’s Day off like an Irishman (or woman) with a typical Irish Breakfast?

If eating such a hearty meal is too much for your palate, maybe some Irish oatmeal, scones, or Irish Soda Bread with jam will do the trick? Top it off with some Irish Breakfast tea and you’ll be feeling lucky in no time. 

St. Patrick’s Day Parade

More than likely, there is a St. Patrick’s Day parade or celebration in your area that is good, clean fun for the entire family.  After your hearty breakfast, you might be in the mood to walk around. If not, you can always watch it on TV.

The luck of the Irish Stew

No one’s saying you can’t have a green beer, so why not enjoy it with an authentic St. Patrick’s Day dinner?
The most typical dinner of the day is boiled Corned Beef and Cabbage, but you can try making anything from Irish Stew to Pea and Ham Soup.

Ending the day off right

Dessert is always the best way to end a festive day. Try making something fun like these Chocolate Stout Cupcakes or a more traditional Kerry Apple Pie.

And as always, don’t drink and drive and have a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day!
