St. Patrick’s Day Prep

Hola y’all!

In case Daylight Savings Time has thrown you off, ST. PATRICK’S DAY IS THIS WEEKEND!!!

St. Patrick’s Day is my second favorite holiday and I tend to go all-out for the occasion. And this year, I’m checking something off my bucket list: ST. PATRICK’S DAY IN IRELAND!!!

C and I leave in a couple days for the Land of a Thousand Welcomes and if our minimal interactions with the Irish people so far are any indication of what’s to come, we’re going to have an amazing time.

BUT for those of you unlucky souls who don’t get to spend St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland, here’s a guide to living your best life this Sunday. Everything on this list has been tested for maximum St. Paddy’s day fun, so you can trust me on this one.

To Eat:

Beer Cheese – it’s so easy and simple, yet delicious. Dom requested a second batch last year, two weeks after St. Patrick’s Day. Special shoutout: this is the recipe that convinced me to purchase Colman’s ground mustard and it’s a GAMECHANGER. I never knew mustard powder could be so good.

To Drink:

St. Patrick’s Day is the only time of year where it’s acceptable for me to drink my preferred number of Irish Car Bombs. The older I get, the harder it is to find people who will take them with me. *Shakes fist at sky*

To rectify this problem, I found a recipe for Irish Car Bomb jello shots. The recipe was fine, but tbh, it just made me want regular Car Bombs.

Then I moved on to Bailey’s Irish Cream jello shots. They worked out very well, but they weren’t traditional jello shots and most people want more alcohol than this offers.

Which led me to the best option: Saint Patrick’s Jello Shots using lime and orange jello and Irish whiskey.

To Watch:

Option A: The Boondock Saints
Option B: The Departed

These are no-brainers so I refuse to explain why they’re on the list.

Tell me your favorite ways to celebrate in the comments, and I look forward to spamming you with pictures when I return.
