Did you have a lucky and lively St. Patty’s Day yesterday? Perhaps you plucked a four-leaf clover, or found a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow (as if, right?!). Maybe you just had a jolly celebration with family and friends, and wore a touch of green to avoid an unlucky pinch. As for me, I always find that St. P’s is a great excuse for an Irish supper. In the US, a “traditional” St. Patrick’s Day meal is corned beef and cabbage, but like turkey on Thanksgiving, it gets old for me and I like to try new things.
Yesterday, I made a fantastic pork roast with apples and cabbage. I haven’t had a chance to scrap my recipe yet, but as always, I’ve got a kit in mind. New from Snickerdoodle Designs, a whimsical Irish-themed set of minis, Laddie Brian and Lassie Brianna (sold individually and as a collection).
While I love sharing my own stories here on theStudio blog, this time, I couldn’t beat Karen’s fairy bush tale – it’s the perfect accompaniment to this delightful collection. You can read about the fairy bush (and inspiration for Laddie and Lassie) on Karen’s blog here. And for my post, I’ll share my recipe instead.
