Couldn't resist this post !!
Being from the Green Isle, I thought I would throw in my 2 cents (euro cent that is!!)

We actually shorten St Patricks Day to Paddy's Day. And believe me it is not just a holy day!
Originally hailing from Dublin I can tell you we have always celebrated our National holiday with lots of good food and of course lots of drink. Granted we do start the day by attending our local church for Paddys Day mass which is then followed by our local parade after which a stop off at the local pub with family and friends for a few bevies (drink of choice). Then on to dinner, my favourite being a Dublin Lawyer here's the link for the recipe
Irish People and Ireland - Irish news, events in Ireland, Irish culture, genealogy, music, Ireland travel

The original version of Cornbeef and cabbage is Bacon and Cabbage but we would have that with spuds and parsley sauce....mouth watering !
Here's another link for that and Irish stew
Irish Emigrant - News and jobs for the global Irish community (broken link)

No Paddys day is complete without some traditional music and dance so we normally head back to the bar for the night or to some family or friends house for some great craic (If you are enjoying yourself, it is good craic)

Anyway I better stop...feelin a bit homesick now!
I hope you have a fantastic Paddy's day celebration where ever you are as I've discovered on my travels ...we are everywhere!

Green beer is just wrong.

Soda Bread? There are recipes on the web. Just make sure your recipe includes buttermilk.

Or I have served a slab of smoked salmon alongside cream cheese and some water crackers... goes great with guiness.

Thanks for sharing, moving2georgia. I have a recipe book of Irish cooking that does mention bacon and cabbage, as well as spuds and parsley sauce.

::mouth begins to water::
Actually, Guinness itself is almost like a side dish.
Holding up a pint of that stuff is almost like raising up a glass of maple syrup.

Would agree, Bluewillow when my Mom was pregnant with me (many moons ago) her doctor recommended a glass of the "black stuff" every now and again...very nutritious
I was never partial even though I got to lick the cream of my Da's pint as a kid .
I prefer a drop of Jameson's which is also the best for Irish Coffee.
A hint with the bacon and cabbage, if you slow cook the bacon in water use that water to cook the cabbage ...very soft cabbage and tasty!
