#1. What’s your favorite green food?
Mint chocolate chip ice cream! Or, if you mean food that is green originally...really, any kind of lettuce, believe it or not.
#2. Do you eat anything special on St Patrick’s Day?
Yup! Green foods (think lime jello and pistachio pudding) and Irish foods (salmon, shepherd's pie, potatoes a-plenty, and my mom's Irish Soda Bread recipe). Lucky Charms for breakfast, of course. Irish potatoes for dessert (think a coconut cream Easter egg--little--but covered in cinnamon instead of chocolate). And this year, we found shamrock soft pretzels for snacks.
#3. Do you drink any Irish beverages - tea, coffee, ale, beer, etc?
Irish breakfast tea (especially decaf) is always in my house. And my husband will drink an Irish beer or whiskey anytime.
#4. Share a recipe for corned beef.
Hmmm. I don't think I actually have one. My mother used to essentially boil it in water with cabbage and potatoes but while it is a passable meal, it's nowhere close to enough of a favorite to make it worth stinking up the house for. But oh, my father used to love corned beef hash, and corned beef sandwiches. My, how tastes change! Click on the button above to join the fun!
