Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Most New Yorkers are showing their Irish spirit by marching through the streets of the city and sampling beer & food from various pubs. The FN team is here and enjoying a Green Bagel & Irish Soda Bread Breakfast put together by our Employee Activities Committee - so we are all very excited!

In honor of today, here are some traditional foods to try:

1. COLCANNON - Mashed potatoes with onions and greens. Get creative - my favorite combination includes red skin potatoes (mashed with skins), sauteed kale & onion, and a bit of garlic.

2. BOXTY - A mixture of raw and cooked potatoes.

3. IRISH STEW - This particular recipe from our FN Test Kitchen inclues lamb and goat cheese.

4. CORNED BEEF & CABBAGE - Paula Deen's fast and delicious recipe.

5. CURACH - An Irish dessert consisting of toasted oats, whiskey, raspberries, and whipped cream (how can you go wrong?!).

What are you cooking up for St. Patrick's Day?
I hope you have a fabulous day!
