But holidays give Josh and I a chance to venture out a little bit and try a few new things. Irish food is something we both like. In our city, we have this very Irish little pub and the food is amazing! Their fish n chips are out of this world, their mac and cheese will have you swooning and their desserts are incredible. I’ve only been there once (back when I was pregnant with Christian) and I’ve been wanting to go back like crazy and try other entrees. I would say St. Patricks Day would be a great day to go, but the place is already crazy popular with the locals and on St. Patty’s Day….I think we would never get a table.

I've just done a google search for drop biscuits - they're scones, right?
Probably a lost in translation thing, for us Kiwis a biscuit is like an oreo.

Scones are very different from drop biscuits. Drop biscuits are a relatively easy dough that requires zero rolling of of dough or use of a biscuit cutter. Mix everything together in a bowl and drop it by spoonfuls onto a prepared pan. Scones are more of a pastry that you could enjoy for breakfast or as a savory side. And are usually made into a triangular shape verses a ball. If you would like a recipe, here's one from my blog :) http://www.catzinthekitchen.com/2014/04/drop-biscuits.html
