Try-It-Tuesday St. Patty's Day Style

Like how I just now, half way through March, got my March header up? Yeah, I've been slacking a bit this month. I've also been slacking with my Try-It-Tuesdays. But not to worry, today I've got a yummy one for you. And it's the perfect St. Patrick's Day meal to boot. If you aren't a fan of the traditional corn beef and cabbage then you just might like Irish Stew. (I wish I had a picture for you; maybe tomorrow night after I've actually made the meal, I'll post a pic. UPDATE: picture added.)

Irish Stew
1 lb bacon (diced)
1 lb kielbasa sausage (cut in 1 inch pieces)
1 large onion
3 cloves garlic(minced)(yep, you'll have monster breath)
salt & pepper to taste
2 lbs red potatoes
1 sprig fresh rosemary
6 c. chicken stock

Cook bacon until crisp, add sausage and brown.Drain grease. Add onions, cook until tender, add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add potatoes, chicken stock and rosemary. Bring to boil, simmer until potatoes are done. Remove rosemary and serve with a nice crusty piece of bread.

Leprechaun Slush

1 scoop rainbow or lime sherbet
1 1/2 c. 7-Up

This is our St. Patty's Day meal. We look forward to it every year.

Hope you have a wonderful day o' green. Maybe the leprechauns will find your house (and mine) and leave a chocolate coin or two.

Elena your meal almost makes me like St. Patricks day. It sounds alot more appetizing than corned beef and your slush does not make me feel sick like a shamrock shake!

Top 'O the mornin' to ya!

P.S. Anything with lots of garlic is always good! Have fun with your kiddo's!

Sounds like fun. Going the under-achiever route this year, with our dinner -- everybody's still a little on the subdued side just getting over the flu.

Love the cute header! Happy St. Patty's Day!
