Traditional Irish Food For St. Patrick's Day

A slow cooker, otherwise known as a "crock pot," is a wonderful implement for a busy cook. Slow cookers are great because absolutely anyone can assemble recipe ingredients, turn the knob, and forget about preparation for several hours. Even those who don't work outside the home and have more time to cook, find slow cookers beneficial. Besides making meals easier to prepare, slow cookers make foods more flavorful and incredibly tender - especially meats.

Place the onion, beans, tomato sauce, beer and diced tomatoes in a slow cooker moroccan lamb. Add taco seasoning and stir to blend. Lay chicken breast on top of the mixture pressing down slightly until just covereed by the other ingredients. Set slow cooker lamb casserole slow cooker for low heat cover and cook for 5 hours.

JF: On our list, we pair every pizza with a glass pour. We offer that as a quick reference guide to customers. One of the inspirations for the list is we'll offer a "Somm Selection." My wine buyer and I will collaborate on this together. We'll work with growers and producers and bring in special wines. We also offer a special Wine of the Week - both a red and a white for $5 a glass. We taste the wines constantly throughout the week, and buy in enough volume so that we can pass the savings along. It's been hugely successful for us.

Meanwhile, as we plan for the Christmas-tide of entertaining, if we do any, there seem to be two different things to do: dinner or dessert. By that I mean that although you may not want to have another big dinner occasion following the effort you put out for Thanksgiving it is possible to invite friends to stop by for a coffee/dessert evening after your slow cooked moroccan lamb family has had a reasonable Christmas dinner why else would you bake all those cookies?).

This classic Irish bread can be served alongside dinner with butter or you can choose a sweeter version made with honey vanilla and raisins and offer it slow cooker moroccan lamb as dessert.
