Happy St. Patrick's Day! Have you ever had two similar dishes then meshed them together? Well, that is what happened today. We like the Irish fries at Murphy's and the loaded tater tots at Hooter's. Somewhere in the recesses of my mind, the two dishes melded together so I came up with some just a bit different for our St. Patrick's Day meal.
I couldn't find tater tots so used McCain's Tasti Taters. I cooked them as per instructions then topped with fresh gTrated mozzarella cheese, bacon bits and sliced green onions with sour cream on the side. The end result was a rather tasty side dis for our evening meal. There was a lovely splash of green to mark the day but I really didn't go all out for St. Paddy's Day.
Truth be told March 17 hits right in the midst of my husband's busy season where we are up at 3 AM and in bed by 8 PM most nights. I might fiddle on the laptop for a half hour after going to bed but really that about sums up our schedule. I'm refinishing our diningroom table so things are a bit hectic and yet this was still a nice celebration meal!
