We're not very Irish, but it can be fun to observe St. Patrick's Day anyway. It seems like we do it differently every year; we've never really found a tradition that has stuck. I discovered years ago that I don't like corned beef and cabbage, and some of my children don't like it when I dye the food green.
A few days ago I was at Aldi and I was looking at their selection of specialty cheeses. We love cheese, especially affordable specialty cheeses at Aldi. The Kerrygold cheeses caught my eye, and I put two and two together. Irish cheese for St. Patrick's Day! Why did I not think of this before?
I think this has a high probability of becoming a tradition.
Then, yesterday n my social media feed someone posted about Irish soda bread. "I could make that," I thought. "It even looks good."
It IS good! I could make this a tradition too. Irish soda bread and Irish cheese. Works for me! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
