Happy Monday! Only a few more days until St. Patrick’s Day, which means my crock pot is going to be stuffed to the brim with delicious, salty corned beef cabbage, potatoes, and carrots. And I’m picking up a case of Guinness, too.
The food we eat on Saint Patrick’s Day isn’t really an Ireland staple, but Irish immigrants opted for it since they were used to eating salt pork back home.
If you’ve never made this dish before, consider it this year, especially since there’s this blizzard coming through. Seems like a great excuse to make it early in the week; that way, you’ll have a hearty meal to enjoy after you shovel!
NOTE: Due to the expected weather, we suggest calling ahead before setting out for events at the beginning of the week. Who knows how many inches we’ll get!
Irish menu specials galore!In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day, restaurants are pushing out their Irish menu specials this week and into the weekend. So, start your week off by heading to Karlton’s Cafe in Quakertown for some Irish breakfast, lunch and dinner. They’re cooking up shamrock pancakes, Reuben omelettes, chocolate stout French toast, garlic stout burgers, and more! You’ll find the complete menu here.
Also Smoke ‘n Dudes is cooking up some St. Patrick’s Day food, but you need to call in advance in order to set aside some corned beef and cabbage. They have ham and cabbage with potatoes and ham and cabbage soup too. You can call 215.752.5500 to place your order.
