Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Today my grandparents, Andie & Maddie

came over for lunch and to celebrate the holiday…

I made…

Irish Soda bread

Joy of Cooking Recipe HERE (I didn’t add caraway seeds to this)

Cheddar Ale Soup

~ Beer Cheese Soup ~

6 cups chicken broth

24 oz. dark beer

2 cups finely diced celery

2 cups finely diced onion

2 cups finely chopped carrots

2 cups chopped potatoes

4 cans cream of chicken soup

2 lb. processed cheese (I use Bongard’s)

In a big soup pot, cook broth, beer, celery and onion over medium heat for 20 minutes. Add carrots and potatoes and cook until vegetables are tender. Add the cream soup and cheese. Cook just until cheese is melted and soup is hot. Don’t boil. Garnish with freshly popped popcorn and a little black pepper. Enjoy!

…garnished with popcorn, of course!

and

Guinness Chocolate Cake…

and then we played
