Welcome to Meal Planning Monday. This week I would like to share our themed menu for St. Patrick’s day this year. I love doing the themed meals and my family loves eating them.
This years’s menu is a bit different from my corned beef and cabbage.
We are going to have Cornish pasties. Tatties with sour cream sauce, cabbage steaks,and maybe pretzels with cheese dip. For dessert an apple cake with a creme sauce and Watergate salad. I am sure that isn’t Irish but I wanted something green and not green frosted cupcakes.
There were so many recipes out there for Cornish Pasties, or hand pies. I finally chose this because My family will like the ground beef and it’s less expensive than steak or roast. It also used home made pastry and not store bought. https://www.cookingchanneltv.com/recipes/michigan-pasty-meat-hand-pie-2042803?
This was the runner up. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/26599454036475131/
There were lots of potato recipes. Some called Boxties, some called Tatties. I chose this one.
I love cabbage steaks, the family does too. They are so easy to make. just slice, season, bush with oil or butter and roast in
This cake looks delicious. I am thinking of cupcakes though to stick with the hand food theme. https://www.coupons.com/thegoodstuff/authentic-irish-dishes/?
How did you celebrate St Patrick’s day?

The food looks amazing. I’m so glad it worked out for you. We took the boys to the aquarium and bought groceries. Not a celebration but fun all the same.
I wish we had fun things to do around here. I think when the water goes down a trip to Reelfoot is in store for a picnic.
That sounds amazing. I love picnics. Maybe when it warms up I’ll see if Brad wants to do one at the duck pond.
You are a miracle, Cathy. I so admire your foodie adventures, and these all look delicious, especially the boxties.
The boxties were the favorite. They disappeared like hotcakes! LOL(pun intended)
