St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner and I'm starting
to see green because there are a few different parades in
this area and this weekend we march with the girls scouts
in our town's Irish parade. This is a fun family event and
I have never seen such a sea of green between the floats
and themed out kids and adults whether marching or enjoying
from the sidelines. Actually our scout girls are still up to
our ears in thin mint cookies we should probably be tossing
those to the crowd instead of tootsie rolls! Over the years
we've seen freezing temps and torrential downpour I'm glad
it looks like this weekend is actually going to be a nice one.

The local groceries have fully loaded up with the extra supply
of corned beef and cabbage for next weekend's Irish feasts.
Don't forget the potatoes though, how about a delicious dose
of these OAKHILL POTATOES? And now is not the time to be dieting...
I think that's what the parades are really for to walk off some
of the calories because you really can't have potatoes without
a generous dollop of real butter on them ;o) How about an hot
Irish drink recipe for these still so chilly nights? I've
bonused you today with a recipe for Irish Coffee Supreme too so be sure to scroll down.

Enjoy!

Of course you can drizzle a little Bailey's over just about
anything and make it taste good (even ice cream) but this
terrific hot recipe uses Irish whiskey instead. A true
belly-warmer.


IRISH COFFEE SUPREME:

1 1/2 oz Irish Whiskey
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 oz heavy cream
coffee
float green creme de menthe

Fill glass with hot water to pre-heat then empty. Pour piping
hot coffee into warmed glass until it is about 3/4 full. Add
1 tablespoon brown sugar and stir until completely dissolved.
Blend in Irish Whiskey. Gently top with a collar of slightly
whipped heavy cream by pouring gently over a spoon. Color
with creme de menthe and enjoy while piping hot.
