Happy St. Patrick’s day!
Typically today I’d be cooking corned beef and cabbage or maybe a Shepard’s pie. I still may for dinner but honestly I’ve had a long week. I’m tired and frustrated and for some odd reason I’ve been craving a milkshake — which is completely unusual for me. I think maybe I’ve seen one to many Sonic commercials lately…..Anyhow, looking at what I had on hand I thought about this Bailey’s mint concoction and figured, why not? Am I ever glad I did! This is creamy and minty with just a bit of kick. I used the green colored mint chocolate chip ice cream so my shake would have a green tint — because hey it is St. Paddy’s day after all!
