Hope everyone had a great St. Patty’s Day! We had a little holiday celebration here at Casa de Mitchell. It all started with a holiday breakfast. While Tim was at work I whipped up a batch of green waffles, topped it off with whip cream and lucky charms for my wee lad. He was thrilled! I love letting him dig in with his fork or with his hands. Whatever he chooses, he never fails to get it all over his face and head. Why isn’t whip cream sticky proof? Someone needs to invent that…just sayin.
Since Tim is half Irish, I promised him an Irish feast. Bailey’s cupcakes included (adults only). For my very first time, I cooked corn beef and cabbage. It was actually my first time tasting it too. It’s definitely an acquired taste, but I don’t mind it once a year. I cut up some potatoes, carrots, and onions and threw all of it into the crockpot along with the beef. I love crockpot meals cause all you have to do is throw everything in and wait several hours. And boom! Done! It’s Guinness! I mean genius!
Festive bow tie pasta for the young ones. I knew they wouldn’t like the corn beef so this is what I planned for them with rainbow cupcakes for dessert.
The Irish cream cupcakes were to die for! I skipped the last part of the recipe, which was adding MORE fudge sauce. I wouldn’t mind it, but there wasn’t anytime. Plus I figured the chocolate ganache filling was enough for now..mmm so good. I’m still learning how to use a piping bag and decorative tips so excuse the poor frosting decor.
Not my favorite rainbow cupcake recipe, but they passed. I will definitely try a different one next time.
