St. Patrick’s Day Recipe Round-Up

Break out your favourite green attire and celebrate the Irish way with these delicious and healthy St. Patrick’s Day recipes.

Back in my heyday (do people still say that or did I just age myself a century?) I could not wait to head to a pub on March 17th and drink green beer all day long.  I have spent many St. Paddy’s days in Irish pubs all over Canada, and for the record, my favourite place to spend it is in Halifax, NS. There is a plethora of Irish pubs there. We would start at noon and stay there until midnight dancing the day/night away with friends to a live Celtic band. Oh, those were the days!

Those days may be behind me, but I still like to get festive on St. Patrick’s Day. Now, I prefer to celebrate with a delicious meal in the comfort of my own home.  Don’t get me wrong, I still like to go out and have fun, but the comforts of home seem to call my name louder these days. Healthy St. Patrick's Day RecipesPork, cabbage and root veggies seem to be the most common Irish-themed foods, but I’m sticking to the “green” theme and including some other healthy recipes from my blog and some of my blogger friends.
