St.Paddy's Day

We always bake the Irish Soda Bread and dress in green. I will include the recipe, it is very easy and tastes delicious! I brought some shamrocks from the garden in to decorate for our holiday table.. Did you know those are edible? Check it out..

Back to more tasty treats.. Here is the bread recipe:

Irish Soda Bread

2 cups white flour, 2 cups wheat (I used 4 whole-whitewheat)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
4 tbsp. chilled butter, cut in small pieces
1 cup raisins (I used brown & golden)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk or plain yogurt

Combine dry ingredients in large bowl. Cut-in butter until pea-sized.
Stir in raisins and buttermilk. Turn dough onto floured surface and knead
1 minute. Shape into disk and cut an "X" on top. Bake on greased baking sheet
for approx 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees F.

After our bread and tea snack, the girls wanted to go into the garden to visit the daffodils.
