St Patrick’ day is on this Friday which means it’s the perfect time to celebrate all things Irish!
If you’re thinking about celebrating with a home-cooked meal then I hope you’ll find the menu below helpful. Don’t be alarmed by the amount of items included – many of them can be made in advance and all are pretty easy to make.
Oh, and if you’re currently on a diet then you might want to skip this post entirely as this menu is definitely on the… ‘filling’ side ;) But hey, you don’t get to celebrate St Patrick’s day everyday, do you?
Let’s kick off the festivities with a delicious cocktail, shall we? This Leprechaun’s Kiss cocktail seems fit for the occasion.

Traditional Slow Cooker Corned Beef And Cabbage
Slow cookers are perfect for weekday dinner parties as you can simply toss all of the ingredients in your cooker in the morning and come home to a delicious meal! If you don’t have a slow cooker, then simply make this corned beef the night before your party and reheat it on the day. It will still taste yummy!
