    What do you eat to celebrate St Patrick's Day?

    My wife is addicted to the horsradish sauce I make...so we'll be having corned beef.

    What about you?

    In our house, we traditionally do the 'traditional' non-Irish corned beef and cabbage (with potatoes & carrots; one-pot meal), served with Guinness, which is definitely Irish.
    To mix things up, we do make Shepherd's Pie on occasion (made with lamb, NOT ground beef — shepherds don't raise steers. Beef makes 'Cottage Pie'). I actually prefer a good shepherds pie but the CB & Cabbage tends to win out in our household.
    Leftover corned beef makes a breakfast appearance as hash the days after St. Paddy's day.

    Lamb or mutton, it's all great to me! BTW next time you do that Shepherd's pie, you need to invite me or at least post a pic. :drool::rofl:

    Mutton is harder to come by in these parts, so we tend to stick with lamb.
    'Lamb Hash' is common in our house the day after Easter....

    Sometime when I travel toward Rochester NY, there are more sheep farms and you can find it in the local grocers, fresh.

    Corned Beef, Cabbage, Boiled Potatoes, with Guinness. This is what I've done for over 20 years, until now. I forgot all about St Patrick's Day, until it was too late.

    Roast piglet, on a beach in Costa Rica, accompanied by rice, red beans, plantains, tortillas, fruit salad, and rice pudding. Many people drank Sangria or enjoyed an icy cold Cerveza Imperial.

    They (the local Ticos) just thought it was a normal Saturday. Costa Ricans have a strange habit. Their Spanish dialect attaches the suffix -tico to words to indicate smallness, cuteness, desirability or pleasurability of the subject noun. Hence, Costa Ricans informally self-identify, and are widely known to other Spanish speakers, as "Ticos". They found my poor Mexican influenced Spanish to be amusing, and picked on me for my accent in a jovial way, but they were amazing hosts for a memorable Saturday lunch.

    I'm not Irish, so for the win... I celebrated St. Pat's Day with tacos al pastor with my also-non-Irish godson in a Mexican restaurant. The staff wore green hats, but otherwise no green to be seen. :)

    But, to the original question, you can't pay me enough to eat corned beef and cabbage. So, it's shepherd's pie (or a good beef stew) for me.
