While St. Patrick’s Day makes nary a blip on most calendars, it’s my favorite holiday. I spend the week before planning, baking, and cooking a fabulous feast – in between driving my daughters across the metro to Irish dance performances. It’s a busy time, but one we look forward to each year.
Here are a few of our favorite events, recipes, and crafts for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Des Moines.
