I am popping on here during the busyness of college life to tell you happy St. Patrick’s Day! I wanted to show off my Irish soda bread and just remind you guys to look up the life of this man!
I got into St. Patrick’s Day back in 2020 and I am grateful for St. Patrick. He was taken as a slave to Ireland from Britain as a teenager. And after escaping, year later he returned to the same place he was in bondage. There are myths surrounding his life but the confirmed history we do know is worth knowing about.
I also hope you get to enjoy an aspect of Irish culture on this day since he is their patron saint.
Fun fact: the name Kenedy is of Irish origin 🙂
Here is the video and recipe I used for my bread form Irish chef Darina Allen.
It was a hearty and warm! (Excuse my horrible photography skills)
Soda bread was first eaten by Native Americans and wasn’t eaten in Ireland until the 1800s. But it is definitely a large part of Irish culture and was a good food during hard financial times in Ireland in the past. Click for more info!
I also have some videos for you to watch on the life of St. Patrick!
I had to share the VeggieTales one!
I will leave you with this:
An Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
~ Kenedy M.
