We always combine our St. Patrick's Day celebration with Daughter #3's birthday. I make my Irish soda bread, and then boil corned beef, cabbage, carrots, and potatoes--all in one pot. I love the simplicity of it. No fuss. One pot to clean.
For dessert we have ice cream cake--purchased, of course--so that's no work for me.
This is one of my favorite parties because it involves so little effort. The soda bread takes a bit of time, but it is worth it because nothing tastes quite as good as homemade soda bread fresh from the oven. My daughters have told me they have bought soda bread and it is never as good as mine. :^)
One of our guests told me I should sell it.
But I don't know if I would want to make soda bread everyday. I think it wouldn't be so special to me anymore.
