Just as the grass begins to green and leaves shyly appear on trees, here comes St. Patrick’s day wearing its own cloak of green. It may not be as widely celebrated in Houston as in some parts of the country, but there are a few Irish pubs where green beer will flow and Irish music will spill from the speakers.
I am a creature of habit when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day, so we will have the same corned beef and cabbage that slow cooks in one of those Irish beers and fills the house with warm aroma.
As for the table, not much changes from year to year. White plates set on green placemats always appear with the same green Fostoria glasses and maybe a new napkin. And, yes, I do like using those fedoras over and over.
Here’s to all of you with shining Irish eyes who share in one of Cuisine Kathleen’s favorite days.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
