sheep are everywhere you turn in ireland, so lamb is common for a special meal.

the unwritten rule is always a spud and 2 veg to go with every dinner.

and tea. you've got to offer tea. tea with lots of milk. irishmen drink it 15 times a day, it seems.

hth.

I have a good friend who is from Ireland and she told me on St. Patrick's Day the meat is HAM.

Thanks, Dave! I grabbed some lamb shoulder steaks and am thinking about barley/braise/warmingness. That may be related to the fact that it is cold and rainy here again. I got a good tip on a sodium free soda for the Irish Soda Bread, so things are looking up

I will! ...but don't hesitate to toss out ideas, because I haven't quite nailed down the lamb.
