We a had a great St. Patrick's Day yesterday. Jacob and Claire put on green straight away (and just hoped everyone else had forgotten). What green-wearing kid doesn't love a holiday that sanctions pinching?
For dinner I made a whole wheat Irish soda bread, corned beef with cabbage, carrots and potatoes, and green potatoes from Liguria (courtesy Mark Bittman's Minimalist video on the New York Times). It was all new to me, and thankfully, turned out surprisingly well. Even the cabbage was good, and let me tell you, I had some strong reservations about that. We may even add cabbage to our family standard fare.
