  • It's spelled Samhain... ( Pronounced " sew-in " or " sow-en )...

    We make COLCANNON ( origin---Ancient Celtic Lands ) :Take a head of cabbage, quarter it. Take lots of peeled potatoes cut in quarters. Boil them together in a big pot of water. Drain when they're cooked thoroughly. Mash them together. Add lots of butter, garlic salt, and onion salt & black pepper. Slice cheddar cheese into the hot potatoes and cabbage mixture...

    Now for the FUN part that my grandkids really love ! ( And, this is up to you whether you add it, Ladies, because some people are aghast at it and say--- " Oh, My God,---they'll ( the kids ) will choke to death !!! )... I get 1 inch by 1 inch ziplock bags at a craft store. Into the bags go plastic charms on ribbons that are knotted to make them into necklaces.

    I fold these little charm containing bags into the Colcannon. if you get a spoonful of Colcannon with a charm in it it's lucky !!!..

  • If at all possible we like to have big dinners all three nights, it is a wonderful time to give thanks for the past and look twards the coming year.
    IndigoRose: I havent had Colcannon in what seem like a lifetime, It used to be one of my absolute favorates... might have to make that again this year, it always seems to be a pleasing part of the meal for everyone :)
