My Week on Wednesday, Irish Recipes, and Other Things That are Green

My Week on Wednesday: All things Green or Irish -- Everything you need to celebrate St Patrick's Day!!! via Once Upon a Time in a Bed of WildflowersWith St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner I am thinking that it would be fundamentally wrong not to do a post full of all Irish recipes and other things that are green!

So, whether you Irish all year round, or only Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, or just kind of a big fan of the color green,  I have collected a bunch of posts — some Irish, some just green — from myself, my friends over at the Homestead Bloggers Network, and some of my other favorite bloggers.
