Carnival of the Recipes - Irish Edition

I love Saint Patrick's Day. I get to pinch my kids for not wearing green until they realize I didn't pick out green clothes for them. The Verbalist, a skeptical six years, demanded the precedents for pinching. The Muralist, at four, didn't want to change because she likes getting pinched. The Littlest, at almost two, kept trying to swipe my coffee spiked with the Bailey's Irish Cream I had hoarded. I was going to post my own recipe for Corned Beef Sandwiches but who am I kidding, that's not really a recipe. Rye Bread? Check. Corned Beef? Check. Cream Cheese? Check. Bell Peppers? Check. Ok now I can read these scrumptious recipes without getting too hungry.

Oh, my goodness, am I an idiot.

I think I just posted a gazillion comments, thinking none of them were getting through.

Please do me a favor and just post one thank you comment.

Me ... hanging head and ducking for cover!
