Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!! Thanks to the very gracious Kathleen, at Cuisine Kathleen, for hosting this super fun party for all of us! Kathleen..these are for you!!!
For your enjoyment, please take the time to listen to this magnificent song IRISH ANGEL performed by Jonny Lang. Two of my sisters heard this rendition and passed it on to me. It is now a favorite, next to Danny Boy! The lyrics can be found here.. IRISH ANGEL
I had every intention to start off the day with the PERFECT Irish breakfast..had my bowl and spoon ready…
Then, Carol (There's Always Thyme) and Marsha (Marsha's Kitchen) stole my Lucky Charms! What to do next???? I suppose the only thing I had left to enjoy breakfast with was….
As usual I concentrated on desserts!! My first one is a chocolate cake, cut into small rounds, sandwiched in between a fluffy marshmallow filling, drizzled with ganache and topped off with a chocolate transfer fitting for the day! This was the first time I tried the chocolate transfer sheets and happy to say they are very easy to work with. I purchased mine at Fancy Flours, but you can get them at a multitude of sites on the Internet.
My other dessert is called Grasshopper Dessert Squares! It is a Betty Crocker recipe and is absolutely delicious if I do say so myself. Kept in the freezer, it has just a faint flavor of the crème of de menthe. Garnished with chopped Andes mints, adds another mint flavor!
My shamrock dishes I have used today are “Foley” of course!!
My favorite T-shirt for St. Paddy’s Day…
Thank you for visiting and sorry I was so late…
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
