I was feeling festive and the girls love the tradition of an Irish dinner but ...........
It started with these Emerald Isle cocktails. Nigella Lawson was raving about them on NPR that morning but she can make dirt sound delicious. They are gin with creme de menthe. One was plenty and we agreed never to make them again. This green edamame dip was good and good for us too.
Then I made Mrs. O'Callaghan's Soda Bread from Bon Appetit. It was delicious but very rustic looking.
(Like something you would be served at a Renaissance Faire)
Then of course, the corned beef and cabbage. I promised Mark I'd make him pork next year because he's the only one that doesn't love corned beef and cabbage.
And we topped it off with a green sprinkled banoffe pie!
