Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Not being particularly Irish, and being surrounded by vegetarians and people who don't like corned beef, I skipped the traditional boiled dinner tonight. However, I did make boxty, which I served along with homemade applesauce, Nova smoked salmon, and a big green salad. Boxty are Irish potato pancakes that combine both mashed and grated potatoes. The mashed potato gives them a bit more body than, say, latkes, which are all grated, and overall boxty are less greasy, which definitely recommend them.

looks delicious---i think i ordered boxty both times i visited ireland, and they're lovely! the ones i had were more crepe-y/batter-y and didn't seem to have potatoes in them.
