St. Patty's In the Kitchen



I like to celebrate our teeny tiny bit of Irish blood every March.




I love the wood sign I found on Etsy last year.




Green gingham and some green touches are all I added.




Now for the corned beef and cabbage. I am going to try an Irish soda bread recipe a reader sent to me.

Hi, I love the plant and shamrocks; I am totally Irish through and through. I don't have as many St.Patty's Day decorations as I'd like. I love yours and your shelf as well.
We won't be eating corned beef and cabbage, carrots and potatoes for awhile yet.
Thanks for sharing.

You are such a great decorator! I love everything you do. Just enough and not over the top. I don't do lots of holiday decorating but I do like to add a few touches here and there. I have to get mine out as I am Irish and come St. Patty's Day I'll be cooking up the same recipes! Thanks for sharing! Have a great day!

I love this holiday. My grandparents came here from Ireland. This is terrible to say ,but I hate soda bread. My parents taught me to bake my corn beef and cabbage. A lot of people boil it. It has more flavor that way.
Your shelf looks great. Love the sign .

Tracy said...

I love your St. Patrick's Day touches, Elaine! :)

Cindy said...

I love your shelf, it's so versatile and fun to see it dressed for each holiday or season. Your sign is great and your menu sounds yummy! Good luck with your soda bread, it sounds interesting.

Hi Elaine,
I use to decorate quite a bit for St. Patty's. I finally gave my decor away, but we still do a green dinner for the family. It's always so fun! Your touch of green is very sweet!
Hugs,
Jann

Sue said...

Your St. Paddy's Day decor is certainly fun! I'll be making a traditional Irish meal, including some soda bread. With names like Sullvan and Murphy, we can't help but celebrate the luck of the Irish! Visiting from Marty's party.

I enjoy seeing the changes on your shelf from one season to another. You do a great job of showing how it takes just a few simple and inexpensive things to make your home feel festive for any holiday. I especially love your little salt shakers with the scotty dogs.

Thanks for linking up to the Your Cozy Home Party this week! I always enjoy seeing your posts Elaine!
