Irish Stew (URS: St Patrick’s Day Feasts)

One of my favorite parts about teaching my kids at home is the great reading we get to do together. A book that we read early on was St Patrick: Pioneer Missionary to Ireland [5]. It tells the story of Patrick, how he was kidnapped by Celts, how God saved him, how he escaped from Ireland, and how he later returned to Ireland to preach the good news of Christ. It’s a great read aloud [6].

We often reread this book during the month of March and we always have a simple, special meal come St. Patrick’s Day. We enjoy Irish Stew and Soda Bread. If I’m feeling extra “splurgy” (is that a word?) I might buy Irish butter or Dubliner cheese to go with. (Costco sells both of these.)

This stew is amazingly simple to make. Patrick lived very simply; I imagine that this stew might be something like what he might have eaten.
