"I live in Ireland and growing up, my Mam always made carrots, peas/cabbage and mash for dinner. Green, white and orange like our flag. The meat would be any roast joint, beef, pork or chicken etc. She also made a tri-colour dessert, green jelly, yellow custard and white whipped cream all made into a trifle. We all wore shamrock on our lapels and I would have green ribbons in my hair." (Ann Field)
