Happy St Patty’s Day! I had planned on posting an Irish Soda Bread recipe today but I had a little mishap and the bread is in the garbage. I am not sure what happened or if it was those mischievous little leprechauns. Our family woke up this morning to a big mess in the living room. Our couch was moved and my cooking magazines were all over the place. Darn little leprechauns! My kids had set up traps in their rooms to catch these wee little people but they skipped the bedrooms and went straight for the living room. The traps involved gold, money, nets and yo yos. Take a look at these in case you need to catch a leprechaun.
Luckily they were in a rush so they left behind their necklaces and some boxes of candy nerds. But just look at the mess they left…..
After thinking about my recipe, I realized it might not have been the leprechauns after all. The texture of my bread may have been strange due to the fact that I added baking powder instead of baking soda. I guess you add baking soda to Irish soda bread for a reason. I might try again later but for now I am getting my vegetables ready for my corned beef and cabbage dinner. If you are craving Irish soda bread go to Stacey Snacks. She has a great looking loaf on her blog today. And don’t let those crazy little leprechauns ruin your day!
