This Weeks Eats 4.16.14 and an Irish Soda Bread Recipe

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Even though my husband and I both are of Irish descent, we really don't do much to celebrate the holiday.  But, we do have a soft spot for Irish Soda bread.  My husband's grandmother used to make it and I've experimented with a few recipes over the years.  Mostly trying to find ones that don't require a boatload of butter to taste great.  I adapted this Ina Garten recipe with half whole wheat flour yielding pretty tasty results - I also added a little dusting of sugar over the top before baking.

I forgot to report back from Mountain Mama Cook's Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Tacos - these were REALLY good.  Especially with the blue cheese slaw!  In fact, I think I need an excuse to make the slaw this week...
As always, I'm linking up with Org Junkie, Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers - be sure to check out all the great weekly menus!
