St. Patrick’s Day celebration ideas from Craving’s very Irish blogger, Katie Donovan.
Hmmm, imagine the crisp bite of crème de menthe combined with the sweet luscious taste of chocolate drizzled on top of our finest popcorn. That’s what is in store for you beginning March 1st at Cravings Gourmet Popcorn. You don’t need to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day for this special treat. But, if you come in wearing green you can get $1.00 OFF our crème de menthe chocolate drizzle popcorn.
What is your St. Patrick’s Day tradition? Do you wear green ---hoping to get kissed or pinched? Eating your share of corned beef and cabbage or drinking more than your share of green beer? Or – if you must party, how about creating a mashed potato bar party?
That’s right a mashed potato party! I thought of this party several years ago and it was a real hit with my guests. It is easy to do …make one or two big batches of mashed potatoes. I like serving one with super smooth mashed potatoes whipped with sour cream and another lumpier version made with redskin potatoes and garlic with some skins included. Use your imagination to prepare lots of different toppings for your bar to dress up the potatoes. Serve the potatoes in over-sized martini glasses (you can rent the glasses) for a little pizzazz. Enjoy the company of your guests while you feast on this ultimate comfort food. Finish your party with some sweet treats from Cravings, like the crème de menthe chocolate drizzle popcorn!
Whichever way you decide to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, be sure to make it a safe one. Looking forward to seeing you at Cravings!
