Happy (day after) St Paddy’s Day!

Hope you had a fun weekend and had some time to get into the Green spirit!  Bill & I marked the weekend with Pittsburgh’s St Patrick’s Day Parade.

It ranged from all kinds of Irish step dancers (a lifetime goal of mine) to bag pipers and politicians, and even some really bizarre things like groundhogs and Han Solo.  Here are the highlights of the parade (Click on an image to flip through the gallery):

Of course, part of the fun of St Paddy’s is the food!  (Ok ok, and the drinking.  But we try to keep it clean here.  And well, we’re lame twenty-somethings okay?)

For those of you who actually know me, you know what’s coming.  IRISH. POTATOES.

I shared a quick instagram of them late Friday after I made them and immediately had to pass around the recipe.  (For the record, I used this one from All Recipes.)

For those of you who’ve never had one, they’re basically all the best parts of a cinna-bon, without the actual ‘bon’ part.

 They're made of cream cheese, TONS of confectioner's sugar, and rolled into cinnamon to bitter them down a bit.  D-LISH.  They're made of cream cheese, TONS of confectioner's sugar, and rolled into cinnamon to bitter them down a bit.  D-LISH.

Just because the holiday is over, doesn’t mean you can’t make them anyway! 😉

Hope you enjoyed your St Paddy’s!
