14 St Patrick’s Day Recipes

St patrick's Day Recipes

St Patrick’s Day is a great day to celebrate all things Irish and green. It’s really a fun holiday to get into because really unless you’re buying a lot of green beer it doesn’t require much to celebrate. No fancy gifts to buy for anyone, roses to send or huge family dinners to plan. In Chicago the river gets dyed green which is a really cool sight.

Really can’t we say it is one of the most relaxing holidays?

That doesn’t mean that St Patrick’s Day doesn’t deserve a few good recipes. I mean it needs something besides green beer. Besides I can’t really send that “treat” to school with my kids!
