Like I said the other day, my family doesn’t normally do anything special for this holiday. But now that my daughter is old enough to understand what the holiday is all about, a part of me wants to have fun with it!

That means green crafts, lots of St. Patrick’s Day books, and, of course, yummy Irish-inspired cuisine!
