We see green!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Most New Yorkers are showing their Irish spirit by marching through the streets of the city and sampling beer & food from various pubs. The FN team is here and enjoying a Green Bagel & Irish Soda Bread Breakfast put together by our Employee Activities Committee – so we are all very excited!

In honor of today, here are some traditional foods to try:

1. COLCANNON – Mashed potatoes with onions and greens. Get creative – my favorite combination includes red skin potatoes (mashed with skins), sauteed kale & onion, and a bit of garlic.
2. BOXTY – A mixture of raw and cooked potatoes.
3. IRISH STEW – This particular recipe from our FN Test Kitchen inclues lamb and goat cheese.
4. CORNED BEEF & CABBAGE – Paula Deen’s fast and delicious recipe.
5. CURACH – An Irish dessert consisting of toasted oats, whiskey, raspberries, and whipped cream (how can you go wrong?!).

What are you cooking up for St. Patrick’s Day?

I hope you have a fabulous day!
Kendra, Operation Foodie

    This year I decided to broaden my horizons and try something not so traditional. Yes, I had a traditional corned beef sandwich but I’ve never been a fan of the cabbage. So I combined a little corned beef and uncooked cabbage wrapped them in an egg roll wrapper and deep fried them – with a little mustard dipping sauce it brought a whole new meaning to corned beef and cabbage for me. I also took Kendra’s suggestion and made Tyler’s Colcannon which was delicious – had I known and made the bacon a day ahead as the recipe intended it would have been even better.

    What an interesting twist on a common dish! Sounds wonderful, I’ll have to try it

    Made corned beef and cabbage too. Used A.B’s recipe. Leftovers became corned beef hash the next morning, and the rest is frozen for later. :-)

    Curious – did the FN test kitchen make green beer too?? :-)

  4. So how do promote your site if you don’t leave blog comments? You promote it just like you would promote a band, a brick-and-mortar business, a new restaurant, a backyard lawn care service, and a lemonade stand. You tell people you know about it and ask them to tell people THEY know about it. You buy advertising. You go join a crowd and talk yourselves up.

    Your blog doesn’t display properly on my iphone 4 – you might want to try and repair that

  6. Hi! Someone in my Facebook group shared this web site with us so I came to check it out. I’m certainly loving the data. I’m book-marking and will probably be tweeting this to my followers! Outstanding weblog and wonderful design and style.
