For a change try roast beef, roasted potatos and peas. Or ham, mashed potatos and peas. Or ham, mashed potatos and green beans.

If you want to get wild try roasted chicken, roasted potatos and peas.

Wow, this menu makes me think I am more in tune with my Irish roots than I thought, I cook like this all the time.

Colcannon

1/2 c. finely chopped onion, leek or green onion
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. milk
1 pound cooked mashed potatoes
1 1/2 c. cooked cabbage

Melt the butter in a large skillet and saute onion or leek until softened. Add the milk and the mashed potatoes, and stir until heated through. Mince the cooked cabbage finely and beat into the potato mixture over a low heat, until the result is pale green and fluffy.

This goes well with boiled ham.

Another easy one.... BANGERS AND MASH.... it is just Sausage and Mashed Potatoes! My kids eat it and love it! That is what we call the meal and they down it! I think the Boxty is a good idea and the soda bread.... another thing that would work that they eat there you can look up online is steak fries drenched in curry sauce... it is something I ate there often but I don't know what they called it... it was kind of like a munchie thing. They did a lot of curry stuff..... Just an idea

How about Irish shortbread? We made it in our home ec class in jr. high school (which reminds me, what ever happened to home ec? My son didn't have it and he's already in HS):

Thanks for all the wonderful ideas, this is going to be so fun. We did oceans in bottles today and they loved it.

As far as home-ec they still have it, it's just not called than anymore. I am sitting here looking at my freshmans class list for next year and it is called science and nutrition.

Home Ec in San Diego schools was canceled sometime before 1989 when I started Jr. High.

I had a math class in one of those classrooms with the ovens and cooking work stations. I'd rather have taken home ec!

Colcannon is delicious, but you may have more success with little kids eating it if you go for the soda bread. It's so yummy, and if you make a bunch you could freeze the extras.
And it sounds like your child's teacher needs a Guinness.

I offered believe me, I even told her we could put green food coloring in it and tell everyone it was kool-aid Or I offered St Brendans in some coffee, I might be able to weaken her as we get closer to spring break and the kids get more hyper.
