the florida st petersburg, said a big no when it was on Friday, yes we could, say, true boston Irish, and put out the
blarney, why bother! I had tuna fish!-sorry st. Patrick!. in Boston, they never
would pull this off. even with Richard Cushing on a friday, and fenway, when he had the nuns-on a friday? what did he say? fenway, and the franks, and a friday? it the no meat days! of course boston never won! however, I am Boston born, and did root
for the Bo Sox. yikes in my life time they did win, not once, but twice! If this works, I love tuna fish, for a win for Boston!

Hey, thanks for the link back to our site!

For those who're interested, we've got a St. Patrick's Day [url=http://www.europeancuisines.com/Ireland-Irish-Saint-St-Patricks-Day-Festival-Of-Traditional-Authentic-Recipes]festival of Irish recipes[/url] running at the moment -- some possibilities there for those of you who want to do something traditional but different. We're putting up a new recipe every day until St. Pat's (and the recipes from 2007 are linked on that page too).

There are also two Irish recipe collections [url=http://www.europeancuisines.com/Our-Main-Irish-Recipe-Collection]here[/url] and [url=http://www.europeancuisines.com/Our-Secondary-Irish-Recipe-Collection]here,[/url] a collection of [url=http://www.europeancuisines.com/Irish-Stew-Recipes]Irish stew recipes[/url], and [url=http://www.europeancuisines.com/Peters-Mums-Soda-Bread-Recipe]a soda bread page with video tutorials[/url].

Oh, and there's also a page about [url=http://www.europeancuisines.com/Ireland-Irish-Potato-Candy-Recipe] the potato candy.[/url]

Have a great St Patrick's day, everybody!

Best -- EuroCuisineLady

WE DON'T EAT CORNED BEEF!!!!
(i do like it though..)
A proper Irish dinner is Potatoe, cabbage and cooked ham with white sauce!
(Bacon and cabbage it's more commonly known over here as)
That's proper Irish food

We always have Sunday dinner with the family - inlaws, bro/sis in laws so we are celebrating St Paddys day on Sunday. We are actually trying to do all green food (except the meat

Corned beef/potatoes (even though it apparently not traditional)
Green Bean casserole
Spinach pasta with a pesto sauce
Watergate salad
Green mint cupcakes for dessert
Homemade limeade

My dd is making the decorations this week.

We are going to start having theme dinners too - we have Easter coming up, and we are having an Elvis dinner - complete with grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches!

[quote=MrKrabs;3062138]Corned beef and cabbage is not a truly Irish dish. Its not common in Ireland. It was mainly eaten by Irish-Americans who emigrated to the US because they were extremely poor and it was all they could afford. Ireland: Why We Have No Corned Beef & Cabbage Recipes | European Cuisines


I have never heard of Irish people eating corned beef and cabbage, before today, but we would eat Bacon and cabbage, also known as bubble and squeak!!
