St. Patrick’s Day Jiggs Dinner

Simple Jiggs Dinner

It’s time to plan your St. Patrick’s Day Jiggs Dinner now!

I don’t know who needs to hear this but it’s time to make your shopping list and plan your trip to the grocery store for your St. Patrick’s Day Jiggs Dinner groceries! Seriously, do it early before they run out of the cute little red potatoes, or the “good” bakery bread. Trust me, pick up some baby red potatoes, a perfect 3-4 pound corned beef, some carrots, and other root veggies soon! I’ve waited until the week of St. Patrick’s Day before and had to scrounge for ingredients!
