      What a fabulous post you have given us; everything Irish we need to celebrate the holiday in style. My favorite St Patrick meal would consist of Irish stew and soda bread, finishing off the meal with a apple bread cake. I look forward to making a few of your recipes this holiday.

      St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated the whole month of March in my home, I love everything Irish! I’ve been a subscriber for years and look forward to your inspiration in my inbox. Its hard to choose a favorite Irish dish, but it would probably be Irish Stew, of course with a little Guinness and my 2nd favorite recipe would be Irish Soda Bread to go with the stew. Thanks for sharing all things Irish year after year!☘

    My favorite Irish food has been Irish Guinness Stew found while traveling Ireland. They have a special touch which makes it scrumptious! However, I just pinned your Irish Bread & Butter Pudding with Salted Caramel Whiskey Sauce…it may just win my heart a wee bit more than the stew! It looks delicious! I already receive your emails and love that. I, too, live on a lake in eastern Tennessee and all of your posts strike a cord with me. Thank you!

Your recipes are all drool-worthy and I’m wishing I had some Irish Apple Cake with my cup of coffee this morning. We’re a potato loving household and Colcannon is a family favorite for St. Patrick’s Day. I subscribe by email and would love to win an embroidered runner. That leprechaun hat runner is so festive.

    Oh Mary…I so love everything Irish so todays post brought me many smiles…if I must pick one food I would choose beef stew.. I let the meat for hubby and devour all those veggies. I have to say that sometimes I get so caught up in your posts that I keep reading and reading. This morning found me back at one from 2012 or 2013 about Flower Fairies…so delightful. Then I kept finding more to read about fairies! Must get the book Fairyopolis for my granddaughters (and me). The table runners are gorgeous and you my virtual friend are amazing. Thank you for keeping me smiling. May the luck of the Irish always be with you. Peace.

    Time to get out my green dishes and plan our St Patrick’s Day menu which is always cornbeef and cabbage,lots of boiled red potatoes carrots and homemade Irish soda bread. Also must have mustard horseradish sauce for cornbeef. Always cook enough of everything so we are sure to have leftovers. My favorite is cornbeef hash with poached eggs on top and Irish soda bread on the side. Yum. Thanks for this great homage to St Patrick’s Day. Erin go Braugh.

    We love potato soup in our house, and since my dad always called russets “Ar’sh taters”, does that count!? Pinned and subscriber, thanks for the giveaway!

    Awww, Mary my favorite Irish food is potatoes, mashed, fried, baked or wonderful potato soup! I also like a good Reuben sandwhich too, just for the record. I had the luck of the Irish and won the beautiful shamrock cutout scarf previously and it is a beauty! Thank you for blessing me, it is greatly loved. ☘

    HI Mary,

    Important business first! Would you share the manufacturer and pattern of the green cabbage set of dishes? I nearly had my hands on a FULL set with all the platters two years ago, and I’ve since forgotten the name as I had to erase the memory of missing out on the set from my mind!

    My favorite Irish food would be my mother’s recipe of corned beef and cabbage, along with the memories of this dish shared with my family when I was a child.

    • March 1, 2022 at 5:53 am

      Hi Betsy, Bordallo Pinheiro, wouldn’t a full set be fun to have?! I found my cabbage leaf plates at Tuesday Morning many years ago, I miss their stores. ☘️

    Hi Mary,

    I pinned the photo with the home made dog treats – may the luck of the pup be with you! The treats look fabulous, and as soon as my puppy is off her vet-mandated diet we’ll make a batch for her.

    Hope all is well with you and your family with all the recent storms on the East coast!

    I saw your tribute to your sweet Bichon today and it hit me hard! I just had to Euthanize my beloved little Bichon last Thursday. I know what you meant when you said that the recent loss of your Bichon is even harder because it brings back memories of your other one that you lost last year. The same is true for me. I loved all your quotes under the dogs pictures. Thank you, it was a comfort for me!

    • March 1, 2022 at 4:08 pm

      Thank you Barbara, I feel your pain, it’s so hard saying goodbye to a furbaby. I hope your memories bring you comfort. ♥

    Wow, Mary! I think this is your most fabulous post – and that’s saying a lot!! We were scheduled to visit Ireland in June 2020…but, Covid prevented us. I’ve been in an Ireland funk ever since and your post is just what I need as St. Patrick’s Day approaches. I love all the table settings and recipes – so beautifully presented (as always). My favorite Irish food is soda bread and I’m going to try your scone and Guinness stew recipe this year. I’m also subscribing…which I should have done years ago as I am a regular reader.

    On a totally different holiday note – I’m still getting compliments from my Thanksgiving turkey snack plate – which was HUGELY inspired by yours. So creative and pretty – although my husband refuses to volunteer for making the cheese leaves next time. ;-) Thanks for all the inspiration. Cheers!!

    Mary
    My family has a tradition of a boiled corned beef dinner with the cabbage, carrots and potatoes cooked in the liquid the corned beef has been simmered in for hours. It is our family favorite and until my daughter married a young man from Ireland I thought it was a traditional Irish dish. First time I served it to our new family member ( Gerard O’Brien) he asked the heck it was. He had never heard of corned beef!
    I adore the floral arrangement with tulips and hydrangeas and I’m borrowing your idea of using green cabbage plates and bowls for St. Patrick’s Day table settings

    Oh yum warms the tummy.!!!!!!!!!
    All your treats for St. Patricks day look so good.

  104. March 3, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Mary, don’t know how I missed this post earlier. I always appreciate your posts that gather a look back. It is a great reference. There isn’t a post of yours that doesn’t inspire me. Your tables and delicious food have me planning my own St. Pat’s dinner. I think it will be Irish potato soup!
    Beautiful runners. You are always so generous.

    Top of the Morning Mary!

    First let me say that out of all your beautiful, delightful reads, when I see that “Irish Green Spring Read”, my heart skips a beat. Love all the Irish photos, recipes and ideas for decorating for my Irish Holiday. The lovely runner with yellow and green is so pretty. I have not seen that anywhere. So pretty!

    Oh, my favorite Irish Food, so many. But a Good Irish Stew, with warm Irish Soda Bread and a nice Irish coffee, yep….I am ready to Celebrate!

    May Your Day Be Filled With Beauty!

    It’s hard to pick one favorite Irish dish but at the top of the list is a full boiled dinner – picnic ham, potatoes, carrots, onion, and turnips (rutabaga), with soda bread on the side. I could eat this day after day. :)
