With St. Patrick’s Day coming up in a couple weeks, this month we will be focusing on Ireland and spending time praying for the work that is happening in Ireland as well as enjoying their yummy food. This would be a great month to dive in and welcome your little ones to “International food” as you might already be serving some of these yummy treats around your home and it might not be quite as “weird” as say Kefta or Tagine or Turkish food…
