Happy St. Patrick's Day

Do you actually know anything about Saint Patrick? Tom and I were discussing this last night. For a holiday that is pretty widely celebrated, you'd think you'd know more about the guy who its named after, right?

A bit of internet searching provides that he's one of the most well known figures in Christianity but that most of his life was rather secretive. Well, that was helpful. I'm still not quite sure how he became a saint and what he did as a saint, but I guess I'm okay with that.

I do know however that most of the things we believe are traditional to St. Patrick's Day actually aren't. Corned beef and cabbage being one of them. And I doubt that any religious figure would condone drinking to the amount that most people do on his celebrated day. So what does that have to do with anything?

Well, I thought I would make what most people believe are traditional foods for the day. I've never made anything Irish before and considering I am Irish, I figured now was a good a time as any to start.

The menu for today is as follows:
Corned Beef Brisket
Colcannon
Corn O'Brien
Irish Soda Bread
Car Bomb Cheesecake Bites

If all goes well and each recipe actually turns out, I'll have all of the posted for you next week. I know its after the holiday and won't help you much if you were planning on finding some recipes, but at least you'll have them for next year, right? =)
