To conclude all of the celebrations for today, we ended up at my parent’s house, where they had been cooking up an Irish (yes I know it’s not REALLY Irish!) storm. Dan and I provided the beverages:
Dan brought some delicious green beer, while I opted for (what else?) …
We started out with some avocado hummus and multi-grain chips – the dip matched the color of the day:
After we stood around munching for a bit, it was time for the main event. Words can’t even describe how much I love this annual meal:
Cabbage! Make sure you don’t eat too much of this veggie (I can attest from personal experience 😦 )
Roasted carrots! Delish.
And of course, what meal would be complete without my favorite food of all time … POTATOES! I definitely took a few of these babies out of the bowl after we “cleared” the table.
The main event! This wonderfully tender corned beef roast was served with another of our favorites … horseradish! The meat melted in our mouths, while the topping set it on fire. A wonderful combination.
Penny got quite a few tastes of the food we were eating, but she absolutely did NOT care for the green beer:
She only likes Rolling Rock 🙂
She did come back to the table and beg, however, when the DESSERT was brought out. And who could blame her?!
Angel food cake! It was light and airy – perfect end to a wonderful and hearty meal. I knew I loved this holiday for a reason!
