As St. Patrick’s day quickly approaches, the one thing that always excites us about this holiday (and most holiday’s) are the seasonal recipes that come along with them. Much like the rice crispy treats we shared last week, these hand pies will help get anyone in the mood for the Feast of Saint Patrick.
Neither Sammy nor I are of Irish descent, however one of our favorite colors is green and that definitely helps us embrace and celebrate this cultural holiday. Now, the recipe we have for you today isn’t green, but it’s certainly festive. It’s a guinness infused beef and vegetable hand pie, and is one of the tastier recipes we’ve ever shared. Perfect for any St. Patrick’s Day gathering and/or party you might be hosting.
We probably should discuss one more exciting Holiday we are celebrating, which takes place today, and it’s National Pie Day! Happy Pie Day everyone! We love these two for one blog post’s, and i’d love to tell you it was a happy accident, but nothing is when you are total control freaks like Sammy and I. All of our blog posts get planned out a month in advice which give us the opportunity to schedule important Holiday’s and fun national food days. For business purposes being in control is so important, however, sometimes it makes it hard to just go with the flow of life. Things are always changing, and that’s the one thing that’s always constant. I think it helps to talk about it, and remind ourselves of this when we start to struggle with what is out of our control. It’s funny because one of the things that Sammy and I have in common is we find comfort in being in the kitchen. But not all time spent in the kitchen is to seek refuge from life’s struggle, and it’s certainly been trying times for us these past few weeks. When we got in the kitchen last week to prep and shoot these hand pies, we both were feeling very distracted. Within minutes after beginning, we both noticed that cooking became the distraction from our distractions. Not to mention the delicious meal we got out of it, now that’s a win win in our books.
Keep in mind, as delicious as these are, the prep is more time consuming than a lot of the recipes we post but doable for all cooking skill levels. We hope you enjoy, happy cooking everyone!
