An old favourite of mine- my so actually made it for the family in Ireland on Christmas Eve and it was a great success!
kilo lamb pieces
four medium to large potatoes peeled
salt/ pepper/ bisto
Easy- basically chop everything up and throw it in a pot . Just about cover with water and add the stock cube. Bring to the boil and then cover and simmer for about 45 minutes. Stir regularly to stop it sticking to the bottom of the pot.
Just before serving, add some bisto ( browning) and stir……
Serve with bread, butter and HP sauce!!
17th March, Irish people all over the world and Irish wannabes celebrate the country’s national day. The River in Dublin sometimes runs green and at the home of the black stuff many a shamrock is ‘drowned’…. ( look it up!)
Here are five things you may not know about St.Patrick’s Day…thanks ABC News http://abcnews.go.com/US/st-patricks-day-2013-things/story?id=18723794
1- Paddy wasn’t Irish…..
2- Ireland never had snakes so Paddy never drove them out…..
3- Paddy’s colour was blue, not green…..
4-The first St.Parick’s Day parade was actually in Boston in 1737…
5-The shamrock was the symbol of the trinity used by Paddy and he wore this on his clothes…..hence the green.
