I had no idea what to post about on St. Patricks Day.
Yesterday I posted about how I began my running journey on this holiday.
I was actually inspired because while I’m not Irish, my two favorite drinks are Irish Coffee and Guinness. If I’m having alcohol, it’s a 90% chance it’s either of those.
While googling St. Patrick’s Day Holiday traditions I came across this Buzzfeed article:
34 Ways to Add Guinness into your Recipes
I have added Guinness (talk about a throwback post) to my pancakes before and it gives it a slight dark taste. I recommend adding Guinness and 1/4 cup cocoa powder. You won’t regret it.

I enjoy cooking with Guinness occasionally because I think it gives it a bold, dark taste. I also just like the taste…so today you learn nothing about my running but everything about my alcohol habits.
I don’t have any green smoothies or green oatmeal to post today because I’m not clever. I’ll save that for instagram.
Since I enjoy my memes here are a couple:
I guess this is a super random post for today but that happens occasionally. You learn my favorite drinks and that I occasionally cook with Guinness. A few more fun facts in case you play jeopardy about my life…
Finally..stay safe my friends!
Questions for you:
How are you celebrating St. Patricks day?
I am working..wahoo…then probably hanging out a local bar.
What is your favorite beer?
I did a 5K race Thursday night to celebrate. Other than that, I won’t really do anything… not a holiday I really celebrate. I will eat a salad tonight and that’s green so surely that counts? Clay made guinness brownies once and they were delicious… my favorite alcohol is Bailey’s Irish Cream, I like it in hot chocolate… so I guess that’s kinda Irish too.
My favorite beer is Middle Ages Double IPA – but I pretty much love all IPAs 🙂
I will eat some corned beef and cabbage to celebrate. As with any holiday I celebrate it’s an excuse to eat 🙂
Working (I’m wearing green so I won’t get pinched!), and heading to a local bar. Saaaaaame as you, friend.
my favorite beers are IPAs… any type! guinness is good too, though 🙂 we celebrated st pattys with our friends saturday and my parents on sunday, so I think today we aren’t really doing anything!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m not Irish but totally wearing green anyway. I’ll be celebrating in the office too – but we had an “irish breakfast” today with steel cut Irish oats to kick off the day! Plus, our city parade route goes right by my office so I will definitely check it out later.
Favorite beer- I love seasonal beers. In the winter I love pumpkin beers (pumpking and shipyard!), christmas ales, etc. In the spring I like bud light lime and am most of the time not ashamed to admit it 🙂
i never ever understood the hype that comes with st pattys, just seems like a day for people to get silly drunk… as if most Wisconsinites need a reason.
anyway, i digress. those pancakes do sound pretty delish.
We’re having some friends over to make green pancakes (and other breakfast foods, haha) so it should be pretty fun!
honestly, I hate beer and alcohol. so no celebrating here. Just working today also :p
I’ll drink Jessica’s share of beer and alcohol ^^^^^
My favorite beer is called Sweet Baby Jesus – it’s a chocolate peanut butter beer that tastes like Reese’s! We need to go to The Pour House someday. They have a great selection.
OMG, Irish coffee is the best! Dangerous, but also the best.
No drinking for me today. I’m working and then running after work. My favorite beer is probably Pyramid’s Apricot Ale, an apricot wheat beer. I also really like most Shock Tops, most fruity blends and most shandys.
Coffee > Beer. My stomach does NOT agree with it anymore. ><
I only like beer when I add it to recipes actually. I like my alcohol in sweet things like margaritas and cider. I have beer batter stuff before (read, everything in my fridge that could be battered) and it turned out really good! Nothing like beer after a race though, I can totally drink to that!
