Sauteéd Green Goodness For St Patrick’s Day!

image

It had to be done today!  A green dish inspired by my Dad for a special day!  A very Happy St Patrick’s Day to all that are celebrating.  It has been really lovely to see the different recipes that have been cooked and presented on our blogs for today! Everyone is in the joyful spirit! I too had my very first proper taste of Guinness this weekend.  I really liked it.  To me it was like a mature smoky coffee taste which was really pleasant! I can’t wait to bake some goodies I have bookmarked that have Guinness in them!

Have a gorgeous day! Enjoy yourselves!  Much love D x
