Friends, how lucky can we be today? It’s Tuesday, and also St. Patrick’s Day! I’m not sure where #TacoTuesday originated from, but our family usually enjoys tacos at least once a week, so today’s the appropriate day to share this simple recipe.

And St. Patrick’s Day? Being married to an Irish man, I’m sharing a few last-minute ideas for you to possibly prepare for your family or guests, a few “green” things that I’ve been enjoying, plus this fabulous #TacoTuesday recipe, delicious Bacon Shredded Pork Tacos!

And made an ice cold “adult” treat–Guinness Floats! You can always use Root Beer for the kids.

These are fun to make for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Flip them over and let the cheese “brown” on the other side. Oh, boy!
