Happy St. Patty’s Day!
I hope a few of you have the luck of the Irish in you today, or at least a green beer.
I fulfilled my St. Patty’s day shenanigans yesterday in New York while running around among a sea of green.
Fun Fact: One of my favorite things to do when the sun comes out and the grass turns back to green is sitting in the grass and finding four-leaf clovers.
Anyways, I loveee Irish soda bread. I can eat it for breakfast, a midnight snack or anytime. Just slab a bit of butter (I like popping it in the microwave for a few seconds) and popping it into my mouth. So good!
Oh, and here’s the recipe you’ve been waiting for!
