We are all wearing green and have our leprechaun trap set. Now what? How about a memorable and yummy yet simple St. Patrick’s Day dinner.
A few years ago I got all excited for St. Patrick’s day and made our whole dinner around that theme. There were some winners and some losers. My butternut squash soup is now infamous for being everybody’s least favorite thing they have ever consumed. On the other hand my shamrock shaped pretzels were a win. For better or worse that meal is always talked about on St. Patrick’s day. So let’s make some memories for you with a simple St. Patrick’s Day Meal.
Beef Stew For Dinner
It seems like the Irish thing to do. Eat stew. Feed Your Genes has an awesome slightly adapted recipe from the Pioneer Woman for stew. With potatoes, carrots, stew meat, and spices you can’t go wrong. It is a great food to help you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
Simple Shamrock Pretzels
Ah the shamrock pretzel with green mustard. This simple St. Patrick’s Day dinner food from Pillsbury recipe starts with Pillsbury breadsticks. You could always use your own favorite breadstick recipe if you prefer. You roll and shape your dough into the shamrock shape. Then brush with egg whites and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. To make the green mustard just add some blue food coloring.
Lime Sherbert Punch
Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with food includes your drink. To take your St. Patrick’s Day food up a notch try adding in a green drink. For instance, you could make this simple lime sherbert punch. It’s as easy as combining the 4 ingredients into a bowl or pitcher and then adding your sherbet in at the end (either in the whole bowl or into individual glasses). Your 4 ingredients are Lemon-Lime Kool-aid, Ginger Ale, Water, and Pineapple Juice.
St. Patrick’s Day Grasshopper Pie
Dessert is definitely a St. Patrick’s Day food. Remember the restraunt Wingers? They had an epic grasshopper pie called the asphalt pie. This pie has been whipped up for many birthdays and family parties. It’s mint ice cream gives it that green color and makes it the perfect ending to your celebration of St. Patrick’s Day with food.
Once the leprechauns have come and gone settle in for the night with a simple and memorable dinner. With stew, shamrock pretzels, lime sherbet punch and a grasshopper dessert what better way to spend the day then celebrating with a simple St. Patrick’s Day dinner from beginning to end.
