St. Patty's Day is less than a week away, and whether you're dusting off your shamrock headband for the annual bar crawl or planning to stay as far from the hoopla as possible, I think we can all agree that a bowl of corned beef and cabbage sounds pretty good right about now. Traditional Irish cuisine is what comfort food dreams are made of. From lamb stew and braised brisket to shepherd's pie and Cornish pasties, these dishes can warm our bodies and satisfy our hunger with only a few simple ingredients and flavorings.

The most famous mainstay of Irish cooking--and Irish history, for that matter--is the potato, but other hearty vegetables like cabbage, carrots, and onions share equal billing, typically paired with fish, lamb, pork, and beef. For dessert, cheeses, breads, and puddings are old classics, served, of course, with whiskey or beer.

Hungry yet? This week the Farmstand is brimming with all the beef, lamb, pork, potatoes, carrots, and onions your Irish (or not so Irish) heart desires! Check out the recipe roundup below for lots of traditional recipes to get you in the spirit of the holiday!
