Even though St. Patrick’s Day isn’t really a thing here, I felt as though we had to celebrate at least a little. The Saturday before, my head was spinning with recipes – Guinness cupcakes! Soda bread! Potatoes! Cabbage! Meat? But I quickly decided that since it was on a Tuesday, a giant meal wasn’t going to happen and it was best to stick to something simpler.
I settled on colcannon pie, also known as fancy baked mashed potatoes! Add to that some Guinness, bread and cheese, Flogging Molly and a post-dinner visit to the Irish pub for another Guinness and some live Irish music, and it all came together for a perfect little celebration!
