St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays.
I promise it’s not just because my name literally means Ireland.
I started celebrating this shamrock-filled holiday this weekend at an all-day bar crawl in Boston with my best friends. Not only are my grandmother’s parents both originally from Ireland, but I had the opportunity to study there last fall at the National University of Ireland Maynooth.
As is the Irish way, I will be continuing to drink beer with my #PartyOfSix Boston College girls, who I met in Maynooth, tonight. I hope your day, like mine, was filled with treats, luck, and a kiss from someone – whether or not they are Irish!
I am delighted to share a special recipe from my great-grandfather, James Cleary, with you today. It’s best hot out of the oven with butter and served with a pot of tea.
