St. Patrick's Day

March 15, 2012

 We're celebrating St. Patrick's Day a little early this year.

 Every year I poke around my cupboards and look for some green inspiration.
I always pull out my vintage green carnival glass goblets.

It's fun to round up different "greens" to decorate.  Love the long lasting protea.
 The table cloth is a Karen Lee Ballard Design and the napkins are Le Jacquard.

The white plates are Cambria from Pottery Barn.
Flowers are just grocery store flowers, sometimes they can't be beat.

With such a pretty table, I just had to improve on that tired old boiled dinner.

I traded in the soggy boiled veggies and opted for oven roasting. 
Just toss with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast at 400 until tender.
Add the asparagus at the very last, they take about 10 minutes.

And a new recipe for me, roasted cabbage from Martha, brilliant!

I put the corned beef in the slow cooker on low for 8 hours
and served with mustard and horseradish sauce.

Dessert was Cashew Shortbread.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, even if you're not Irish!
