2012-03-17: Happy St Patrick's Day
To celebrate St Patrick's Day I tried out a recipe for Irish potato candy. Take lots of confectioner's sugar, mix with butter and cream cheese and add vanilla extract. It was too sweet (impossible, right?). I had no nuts so I added coconut to help tone down the sweetness. Shape the mixture into mini potato shapes and roll in cinnamon sugar. They look so cute. I'm going to make little potato sacks from burlap and fill them with these candies.
I'm planning on making an Irish feast tonight - corned beef with cabbage and potatoes, green "kool-aid" and sugarfree pistachio pudding. Jimmy and Lupita are coming for dinner. Everybody MUST wear something green. No green, no dinner. Jim hates the color green so he may not get to eat anything:)
