We are not Irish in our home. However on St. Patrick's Day - EVERYONE - is Irish. I actually never celebrated this holiday until about 10 years ago. My very Italian Aunt had married an Irish man and every year he would make a nice meal of corned beef and cabbage for her. When he passed the day was sad because of the sweet memories. So we made a tradition of having her over to celebrate. I made her corned beef and cabbage (even though we really don't like corned beef.) She would bring the Irish Soda Bread and I would have Irish Potatoes.
This year we will have a little party. I had gotten some hats and stuff last year on clearance at target dollar spot. The kids all have shirts (actually from last year too!) I plan to make cabbage but probably ham steaks because I like those better with it. Jace and I are going to do some crafts and make Irish Soda bread from an easy kit I got at Aldi. Of course there will be Irish potatoes and lots of fun reading!!
I created a Pinterest board with a bunch of crafts, recipes and ideas, feel free to follow and pin a few ideas!
Now onto our book choices!
