St. Patrick’s Day Recipe: Our Favorite Epicurious Creation
It’s bound (well, snowbound) to be a white St. Patrick’s Day for a lot of us, but it seems the worst weather has passed. So it’s time to put on your green and celebrate St. Patty’s with vigor and spirit!
Hopefully, you’ve already been inspired to “green” your home design. This isn’t just a St. Patrick’s Day trend, but a real design movement based around green spaces and the selection of Greenery as the official Pantone Color of the Year for 2017. Now that your space is properly decked out for the holiday, it’s time to get your St. Patrick’s menu in order!
As followers of Design Your Lifestyle know, we believe there’s no better place to turn for a great new recipe than Epicurious – in our opinion, the finest food and recipe destination on the Web. As usual, Epicurious has put together a wonderful menu for your 2017 St. Patrick’s Day festivities.
From a simple slow-cooker pot roast to corned beef and cabbage, Epicurious has a delightful menu prepared for your St. Patrick’s Day guests. But believe it or not, our favorite Epicurious recipe for this St. Patrick’s Day isn’t even a main course. It’s a soup!
And why wouldn’t we pick soup? After all, with much of the Northeast (and East Coast in general) stuck in an unseasonable deep freeze, there’s nothing better than a rich, hot soup recipe to warm you up and get you feeling the Luck of the Irish.
So here’s a wonderful, hearty recipe for Green Pea, Asparagus, and Parsley soup from our friends at Epicurious (and specifically, contributor Rachel Beller) that’s sure to liven up (and warm up) your St. Patrick’s Day meal this year.
