{Entertaining}Irish Night 2015

 We hosted our annual Irish Night a little later this year (see our other Irish Nights here and here).
Hosting it later did not guarantee a warm night. In fact, we got a lot of snow that day into the evening. Luckily most of our guests could walk to the party.
Getting ready...
We served a variety of green and Irish themed foods. 
  The sweet and salty green popcorn was easy to make (recipe to come).  I also made Cheddar Leek Dip and served guacamole chips.
 I tried a new recipe for Irish soda bread that I will share in a future post.
 This  Crowd-Pleasing Vegan Caesar Salad was a big hit.  I loved those chick pea croutons and all of that garlic-y, "cheesey" kale!
Of course I made shepherd's pie, both turkey and vegetarian.  Our friends brought their now famous colcannon (potatoes, leeks and cabbage with lots of butter). I made red potato chowder to fill out the carb fest.   Our guests also brought shrimp, fruit and dessert.
 We got tattooed! ;)
We had some very special Chinese visitors and loved introducing them to our Irish night tradition.

Don't forget to enter my CanvasPop giveaway, the winner will be picked TOMORROW!

Let's keep in touch!
