Irish & Soul Food Fusion Recipes
While some of you know that Colin is a wiz in the kitchen and our resident chef when it comes to Mexican dishes, party foods and grilled pizzas, I am learning the art of cooking simple yet enticing meals. Together we have yet to cook our own Thanksgiving feast because we are usually either chowing down on Colin’s or my mom’s delicious food when we are visiting or volunteering at a soup kitchen on Thanksgiving day. But this year with Kingston being so little and not able to participate yet,we have decided to tackle our very first Thanksgiving Day meal in Boise. We are calling it the “blended feast”. It’s going to be a mixture of Irish recipes and Soul food! Yummy.
So far this is what we’ve planned for the menu:
Turkey & Cornbread Stuffing
cheddar mashed potatoes with bacon
Irish soda bread & sweet water cornbread
Down home mac & cheese
Sweet potato pie & banana pudding cheesecake. (can’t wait)
We’ll let you know how it turns out. Please send in any ideas & recipes for our “blended kitchen” Irish Soul Food Hawaiian Christmas Meal!!
Thanks and Have a Happy Holiday Season…
