Like many, I too have a history of spending this holiday in a bar drinking green beer, occasionally quite early in the morning. However, I have a much longer history of eating corned beef and cabbage (well, let’s face it, just corned beef) and running through the McDonald’s drive-thru so everyone had a Shamrock Shake. All that said, this isn’t a holiday that most people celebrate around the dinner table, celebrating over a traditional feast.
Think of Thanksgiving, Easter brunch, and Christmas dinner – all celebrated with those foods you wait for all year long. Now think of St. Patrick’s Day. Other than the boring and not-quite-authentic corned beef and cabbage, there isn’t much to feast on. However, I think we can change that.
