My mom claimed to be 1/4 Irish. She celebrated that heritage each year on Saint Patrick’s Day by preparing a traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner, including Irish soda bread. My sister and niece have taken over the dinner duties. Rotating between them. I am in charge of the soda bread, which I think is actually best toasted in the morning and slathered in butter… Irish Kerrygold butter mmm.
Celebrating the Irish…
The past two years, my “baker” niece added these delicious Bailey’s Irish Cream cupcakes. Mmm The whole group loves this addition to the menu.
Irish breakfast tea with toasted Irish soda bread is wonderful on a cold morning. Maybe it’s the bit o Irish in me that incited my love for tea and tea time. Harney & Sons Irish Breakfast Tea is my go to tea this month. It is hearty and takes milk well.
A factoid for you…The Irish consume more tea per capita than any other nation. Historically, their quick breads and teas are renowned.
Here’s to Irish breakfast tea and a nice large loaf of soda bread.
