On March 17th we will celebrate the Legendary Heritage of the Irish people. We wear green on this day and typically feast on Irish foods, and some also drink green beer with friends. We enjoy decorating with shamrocks and pots of gold. With Saint Patricks Day almost here we traditionally cook Corn Beef and Cabbage. Sure do not want to forget some special side dishes that will go along special for your meal. Good Luck!🍀
