It’s everyone’s favorite holiday! At least mine anyway. There’s just something about this day that makes me want to go a little crazy (probably all of that green beer). But before we indulge ourselves in adult beverages, let’s be sure we celebrate first with some good ‘ol Irish food. Here are some recipes to get you in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit!

Happy Friday! We are one week closer to my favorite holiday of the year. I know you may have read the title and gasped. But you read it right, I for one am not afraid to admit I find turkey kind of laame. Don’t get me wrong, it is delicious and definitely the first thing I associate with when I think of Thanksgiving, but there are SO many other delectable birds and meats out there that I thought it unfair if I didn’t give them the spotlight. So without further or due, here are big pieces of meat that you can make on Thanksgiving that’ll have people saying ” turkey who?”

Hey you!! Don’t forget that there’s a holiday between Halloween and Christmas and it’s actually the best holiday of the year! I’m talking about THANKSGIVING!! People tend to skip right over this holiday once Halloween ends and I don’t see how you could. It’s the only time it’s acceptable to stuff your face full of food, nap, and then do it all over again. In the spirit of this holiday here are some unique side dishes to accompany the star of the show, the turkey!!
