We had a really fun St. Patrick's Day. Joe had to get up early to take the mpre, but I slept in and then found some terrible leprechaun horror movies on syfy to watch. Joe got back from his test and we had lunch and then started cooking. I started making Irish soda bread which is something I've never made before. Once the bread was done, we started our "Irish Stew." It was beef, potatoes, carrots, onions, green beans, and rosemary. I put Irish music on Pandora and Joe and I danced around the kitchen while we cooked. When dinner was almost ready, Joe made me a sour apple martini. I wanted something festive for the holiday, but I hate beer so I decided a green martini was the way to go (Joe had a Guinness.) Everything was fantastic. The stew was yummy and the bread was awesome. That recipe is definitely a keeper.
