Steak and Guinness Pie Recipe
Saint Patrick’s Day for us is a very special day because our daughter was born on this fun holiday. When she was little I was always worried to death that she would hate her birthday being on a holiday, but she loves it. So each year we have to find something fun to do that embraces her birthday as well as Saint Patrick’s Day. Most of the time it is a Green Velvet Cake (Red Velvet Cake), her choice of supper dishes and just some fun Irish traditions.
So this year I wanted to include some great meals that you could enjoy with your family, dessert ideas, treat ideas and of course drinks and gift ideas. So enjoy your St. Pats Holiday with these delicious treats!
