What’s For Dinner? St. Patrick’s Day Dinner Menu

If you’re looking for a delicious home cooked St. Patrick’s Day Dinner, then you’re in the right place! This hearty Guinness Beef Stew is paired with homemade Irish Soda Bread, an all green fresh salad, and Stout Chocolate Cake or Mini Grasshopper Pies for dessert, and a special treat, Homemade Baileys Irish Cream. The beer and beef main dish practically cries out St. Patrick’s Day, and an all-green side dish and dessert menu make this a fun and interesting celebratory menu! 

Welcome Back to What’s For Dinner! As we approach St. Patrick’s Day I got to thinking that food is often overlooked as a way of celebrating this holiday, and that doesn’t seem right to me! Preparing a themed meal is a fun and easy way to get in the mood for any celebration, and this one is no exception. I’ve put together a fun (green!) meal that will help you celebrate without (or as well as?) resorting to shamrock window stickers and dyed green toilet water! This way is far more satisfying, I promise you!
