2012 St. Patrick's Day

We had an absolutely wonderful time this St. Patrick's Day. We played it very low key at home with a few friends and family.

Our lads had a great time, which really makes everything worth it. :)

I had a total "Blogger Fail" moment. Here is the ONLY pictures I got of the Corned Beef & Cabbage and Bangers with Warm Mashed Potato Salad. The food was incredible - and it is a total shame I didn't get any other pics. :(

We set up a couple drink stations. One with ice-cold Irish beers and another with fresh brewed coffee, Irish coffee creamer and Jameson Irish Whiskey.

One of our friends brought this ooey-gooey-deliciousness to the St. Patty's Day celebration. This is one of those foods that is really, really good on your taste-buds, I am talking REALLY GOOD. The ingredients include potatoes, cheese, bacon, fried onions and I am not sure what else - I need the recipe, and once I get it I will share it with you!

For dessert I made some Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. They were great and I will post the recipe late this week. They really would be good year-round, not that I am a Guinness-lover or anything...

I also made my very first loaf of Irish Soda Bread! It is so easy and turns out wonderful, the recipe will also be up by the end of this week. :)

We couldn't have a get-together without some cookie decorating! Umbrellas are not really Irish, but it has been raining non-stop here for a week - so I had to include them!

We had a great time, it was one of our best St. Patrick's Day yet! The day was complete with Irish Pub music, a little dancing and laughter everywhere. Hope you all had a good time as well. :)

I really want to try baking with Guinness. I did cooking with it for the first time recently, but never baking. Seeing all these chocolaty Guinness recipes is making my mouth water!
