The leprechauns sneak up on me every year. After I devour my stash of dark chocolate fudge and truffles, I completely forget that another holiday falls between Valentine’s Day and Easter! Maybe if St. Patrick’s Day involved candy and cookies instead of corned beef and cabbage, I’d remember the date a little better…
But this year, a high school friend reminded me an entire week ahead of time! She posted pictures of her homemade Irish soda bread on Facebook, which I drooled over for a good 10 minutes before searching for a recipe.
I found an easy one, and just 45 minutes later, I pulled my little loaf out of the oven. After carving out a thick wedge for myself, I sliced a thinner piece for any visiting leprechauns… I didn’t want them to think I forgot about them again this year!
