It is almost that time of year again… you know… bring on the green!!! No, no, no not the moola, money green but the little green men, four leaf clovers, green beer time! So what better way to celebrate this fun festive day of the year than to share the top 12 Saint Patrick’s Day Dishes!!
I don’t know about you, but to me, Saint Patrick’s Day has this nostalgia feeling. Every year I whip up some corned beef with potatoes and cabbage crack open my favorite stout beer and drift away to a time before kids when I cared free and to be honest a bit wild.
There was this one time during a pub crawl in downtown Denver I met up with some friends, they had been drinking since keg and eggs first thing in the morning, so they were already well in by the time we met up. My best buddy and I would carry each other from bar to bar, but since he was much bigger than me the only way I could carry him was on my back. So just image a 95-pound girl with a 140-pound guy on her back, two crazy early 20 somethings we were!! Youth is defiantly not wasted on the young because is I was wise and young I wouldn’t have learned not to wear flip-flops while giving someone double my size a piggyback ride. Hey!! But I finished that pub crawl, until 2 am, with one shoe, yes, a flip with no flop.
However, the best part of those days is when we would all meet up at some random local pub at dinner time. Sit around a long table all of us crazy kids and order some amazing Saint Patrick’s Day Dishes! We may have been young and stupid, and honestly quite intoxicated, but we all looked out for each other made sure no one got too out of hand or too intoxicated. Living, laughing, and just enjoying the small moments.
Oh, to be young again… nah!! Just let it be because you can’t create a memory twice!!
Now most of us from that day are now married with kids and have careers we are still building, but all in all, life has turned out pretty good.
So my one wish for you this Saint Patrick’s Day is to enjoy a good time, whether you are young and adventurous (just remember what grandma said, “Dance on table tops, bar tops, and bar stools but never end up under the table,” just an interesting way to say know your limits and be safe) or you are older and with a family, remember to make everlasting memories, ones that fill your heart with joy, and overwhelming happiness. Oh, and don’t forget to have some amazing Saint Patrick’s Day Dishes, because what is a holiday without food!!
So, without farther ado here are my top 12 Saint Patrick’s Day Dishes.
