sheperds pie sounds good, as well as lime jello.
I'd like some cabbage too, so I'm not sure what I'll make. I'm off work that day so I'll be able to wear green and work on my menu for the day. Need to find out what Dad will eat and see if I can put together a 'green' menu-cabbage, lime beans, green beans, lime jello, turnips as long as the meat isn't green...LOL

The pasties look good!

As to the turnips, I've made them before (mashed). They take WAY longer than 15 minutes to cook. I'd give them (smaller than 1-inch cubes) 1 1/2 HOURS to cook, boiling with a lid on, if you want to be able to mash them.

We don't do anything special for St Patricks day. I do have a few decorations that I usually put up but this year Easter is in March too so I am putting up more Easter and less ST P day.

looked at what I wrote in 2010 and I think that I'll forgo that 'green' menu; this year I'm once again off from work and will be able to wear my green. think I'll work on a menu with dd though and maybe go with Sheperd's pie
and a green cake of some sort for dessert. I will probably go with cabbage, broccoli and/or a green salad as sides to go with the pie

As far as our family and extended family goes, no one does anything. However, one of our close married couple friends are simply the best at making people get together. For St.Patty's day last year they hosted a green themed dinner party with green adult beverages. Pretty much a bunch of folks getting together for some good food with fun colorful twists and green booze. Hahah. I would expect they'll be doing the same this year.

When the kids were little and at home I would decorate for each holiday and leave it up till the month of the next. St. Pat's day wa always hard to find things for. Now I really don't do much of any decoration for h0lidays any longer. But now that we have a granddaughter (my DS #2 recently married a woman with a 4 year old daughter..instant grandparents) I guess I need to do a little something. I have a recipe on my pinterest board for a green velvet cake that might work!
