Happy St. Patrick's!

I have, for the first time, really celebrated St. Patrick's Day.
Brunch, anyone?

I invited a few friends over and we showed Merey what an American brunch looks like. Kind of. Mostly, we just used today and our Kazakhstani flatmate as an excuse to cook a lot!

We had:
  • Green dyed meringues with green Bailey's whipped cream
  • Potato, yam, and Guinness soup
  • Hashbrowns
  • Roasted potatoes
  • French toast with Bailey's and orange
  • Scrambled eggs with Bailey's and orange
  • Sauteed spinach in garlic and lemon
  • Bacon (British style, though, because I didn't know better when purchasing them, not being a bacon girl)
  • Beef patties (for our Muslim flatmate, but mostly because Audrey's meatball recipe is really good and they went well with the soup)
  • Guinness mousse
  • Red wine, Bailey's, Guinness, and virgin truffles
  • Mimosas

  1. I made Irish Soda Bread for the first time. Not too thrilling, but pretty good with the appropriate preserves.
