More Irish Food

As promised I'm posting the Irish Beef Stew I made from the recipe I found from Cathy of the Noble Pig.
This stew was wonderful, and rich, and made the house smell like pure heaven. Or maybe Ireland, I dunno. It was my first time ever using parsnips. It was just as exhilarating as I always hoped it would be!
I paired it with this Irish soda bread I found from Kevin at Closet Cooking. It was the easiest bread ever. Its very hearty and paired great with the stew. It makes a small loaf so next time I think I would double the recipe.

Looks like the perfect irish meal! I made corned beef and cabbage over the weekend, it came out pretty well.

Visiting from SITS! The bread looks good. The only soda bread I could find on St. Patty's Day had raisins in it! Is that customary?

Yes, the parsnips rock don't they. I think i like them more than potatoes.

I've never had parsnips before - I would love to give this a try. And I don't think I've ever seen an easier bread recipe. My husband will love it. Thanks!

That is a nice looking St. Pattys day meal!

Mmm beef stew and soda bread


I'll have to post a super easy recipe for beef stew on my blog called 7:30 Apron.
