So, in the end, I cooked some pasta (think Italian). I sauteed some sliced jalapeno chicken sausages with a sliced onion (hmm...more of a Mexican flavor now). And Colette whipped up a delicious cheesy cream sauce and added a little cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes for a bit of a kick. When it was all tossed together, the melding of flavors was decidedly more Cajun than anything else. I served it with a salad. When we finished, I asked Technohubby, "Well, how did you like your 'Irish' dinner?" His response, "Well, the salad was green." We all had a good laugh!
And for the record, when you cook Andes mints into brownies, they lose all their green color. But the brownies are really good!
