TIP OF THE DAY: Plan Something Special For St. Patrick’s Day (45+ Recipes!)

It’s March first, and that means one thing in our home: Do we want to have a St. Patrick’s Day party?

If so, should it be dinner for eight of classic Irish dishes or very modern ones (corned beef and cabbage egg rolls and tacos, Guinnesss Stout floats); an after-work cocktail hour with green cocktails; an Irish beer or Irish whiskey tasting with Irish cheeses; or Irish-themed desserts for our sweet-toothed friends, served with coffee, Irish tea and Irish Coffee?

Note that “Irish-themed” comprises any authentic Irish food, or anything colored green, from Appletinis and Broccoli Salad to Chocolate Mint ice cream, to a anything containing Irish spirits: Guinness and other Irish beers, Irish cream liqueur and Irish whiskey.

While we mull it over, we sorted through these recipes. As you peruse them, think of what you might like to do.
