I wanted to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a traditional Irish feast. Alas, this has been an exhausting week (and it's only Tuesday) for both Craig and me, so Irish Potato Soup or any traditional dish was out of the question.
But I did whip up a lovely leprechaun linguine w/ a shamrock pesto. Actually, it was a spinach linguine and the pesto was traditional basil pesto mixed with spinach and a little silken tofu.
I realized later that I has served this with a baguette and that I was drinking orange juice (while Craig had a beer). So the three elements of my meal made the colors of the Irish flag. I wish I had realized that and taken a photo before my leprechaun linguine was gone.
