AN EASY IRISH STEW RECIPE
Hello thare Monday! Today’s meat and potatoes is brought to you by the Irish! Easy, real food, homemade, comforting stew.
By the way, hope your week is off to a great start! Mondays are so hard, especially when the clock moves 1 hour forward. Ugh…
Truth? I feel so sleepy right now. Like, jet lagged or somethin’. WELP!
I can’t even remember how I got through getting the little ones ready for school this morning… I was half-asleep.
…which might also have something to do with binge watching The People v. O.J. Simpson, last night. At least I’m caught up! (AND hooked!)
I have two things to say today: ‘Lo there, friends! Supwcha der, sham!? That’s probably all I know in Irish slang, but I’m also just stating the obvious – it’s Irish week! St. Pat’s is around the corner and Dublin Coddle is in order.
WHAT IS A DUBLIN CODDLE?
Have you ever had a Dublin Coddle? I have a very off-the-boat Irish uncle and you better believe that this amazing stew happens often, but it doesn’t happen often enough. A mess that starts with sausages and bacon, and ends with flavorful and soft layered potatoes… GIMME!!
Maybe it’s too obvious, but I SO love layered casseroles, all in one pot, and in the oven. All the work I have to do takes up just a cutting board and a knife. The rest is done by our bestie, the oven.
Besides the truth that it’s easy to make, and it’s the most cozy and comforting food known to humans, it is the most delicious hearty Irish dish that will warm your heart and your belleh.
Honestly though? You would be wise to make this happen if you’re into the whole Irish and St. Patty’s thing.
No. Scratch that. If you love damn good food, you should just go into the kitchen, walk in there right now, and make it. AND, you guys will want to eat it forever.
