Are you planning on cooking this St. Patrick’s Day? Or perhaps you’re thinking about throwing a party?! Having a pot-luck at work? If you’re a little stumped on what to bring or what to cook this year, look at a few ideas I’ve just tossed together. There are some for the serious chef or for the low-maintenance cookers.  Categorized in two ways, dishes that are Irish or dishes that are GREEN!

Irish Items:

  • Irish Stew
  • Corned Beef ( include sandwich fixings for a Rueben)
  • Roasted Potatoes or Irish Potato Salad
  • Lime Pie
  • Rhubarb Pie
  • Irish Soda Bread
  • Sheppard Pie
  • St. Patrick’s Day Punch (sherbet ice cream and Sprite)

‘Green’ Items:

  • Spinach and Artichoke Dip (with tortilla chips)
  • Green Tortilla Chips
  • Shamrock Sugar Cookies
  • Green Cupcakes
  • Salad (w/green ingredients-green peppers, cucumbers, broccoli, etc.)
  • Shamrock Shaped Biscuits/Toast (or use green food coloring for color)
  • Green Fruit Tray (green grapes, green apples, honeydew melons, kiwi, etc.)
  • Green Veggie Tray (cucumber, broccoli, celery, green peppers, zucchini, pickles)
