Irish Thanksgiving

Irish Thanksgiving was so much fun! It was met with great success and has already been deemed a family tradition. Mark and I (and my brother) are very proud of our Irish heritage (you can make fun of us all you want) so we were so excited when my parents suggested an Irish feast rather than the normal Thanksgiving spread.

As promised, here are some of the pictures...
Mark and I started cooking pretty early. Mark took care of all of the bread. Plus, he was my wing man!
Me making the brandied yams. They were a hit!
Hanging out in the kitchen. Yes, I'm wearing an apron. It got pretty messy!
Irish Thanksgiving couldn't have happened without these sponsors.

Daniel with Guinness (our mascot). Guinness looks pretty evil in this picture!
Mark's Irish Flag Bread
The full spread...we couldn't eliminate anything from the menu
A plate full of goodness!

Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce for dessert

Mark was STUFFED!

Daniel wasn't sure what to do after all of that food!

Another dessert, a Blarney Bulldog!

The Blarney Bulldog was great! I'm including the recipe if anyone wants it. It's delicious but dangerous!

Blarney Bulldog

You need:

  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Vodka
  • Kahlua
  • Heavy cream
  • Root beer
  1. Put 3 scoops of ice cream in a pint glass.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix 3 Tbs. Kahlua, 2 Tbs. Vodka, and 1/4 cup heavy cream.
  3. Pour mixture over ice cream.
  4. Fill the rest of the glass with root beer (about 1/4 cup)

This drink is very yummy!
