Put on your green and get in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day! Invite your friends and family over to celebrate this joyous holiday with a delightful dinner. Set the scene with lively music from Ireland to fill the air with the tunes of harps, fiddles and piano. Continue painting the picture of the Irish isles with an Ireland flag and green accents around the room from napkins to cupcake frosting. Enjoy a room full of smiling faces from your wonderful company as they feel you have embraced the holiday. After setting the scene, it’s time to start cooking. The dinner must include all of the most Irish ingredients- potatoes, cabbage, and carrots. Get two of the three St. Patrick’s Day musts with our St. Patrick’s Bean Stew.

This stew is easy to make for a room full of hungry people on St. Patrick’s Day, due to its quick preparation for a large quantity. An added bonus is the ability to make the recipe vegetarian, ensuring no guest is left without anything to eat. Start chopping the cabbage, get the green decorations out and make a meal of it.
