Luck of the Irish

17 Mar

Happy St. Patty’s Day!

Too bad no one here believes that I am Irish.  With my new last name and my “accent” my co-workers think I am exotic.

Yes, you read correctly… exotic! Never laughed so hard.  Oh! and I helped my office manager speak and read spanish. What is going on?

Good thing today is a day for the Irish and I hurried home to make an Irish meal for my husband and our friend.

Assortment of cheeses, crackers, hummus, olives, and peppers for our starter.

Below is the beginning of something wonderful, made with butter and cheese from Ireland.

If you haven’t guess yet, I made Shepard’s Pie. Well, my version of Shepard’s Pie.

We didn’t have green beer, but we did have some local brewed and bottled beer made right here in Atlanta.

Sweetwater India Pale Ale.

Now it’s time to make some desserts and goodies for tomorrow. Very excited!

Butter… it’s good for you!

My new obsession for this week is a little stick of butter that I was super happy to buy and take home and try out in a few dishes. As a Paula Deen fan, I know butter makes any dish just that much better.

But, it isn’t just any butter… it’s Irish!

And as we Duffy’s know.. anything Irish is good for you!

Not only is this stuff good on a great piece of bread, but I mixed it into our sweet potato, regular mashed potatoes, and melted it the pan for my morning eggs. The best part, it was under a buck!

Yep! Imma fatty
