Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!  We had a half day at school/work so the two younger girls (A1 had a track meet) and I celebrated with a wee tea.  Although technically, we had cold beverages in lieu of tea. 

The drinks included a refreshing, fizzy cucumber-lime mix (idea came from a beverage served at work today) or Mt. Dew. 

An almost-traditional evening meal of soda bread served with cabbage, potato and kilbasa (not enough time to cook corned beef) soup rounded out our Irish feasting.  None of us were up for a jig or reciting limericks, but we enjoyed this Muppet rendition of “Danny Boy”.  

 Hope you all had fun too. Cheers!

    One of the great things about having kids is that you (if you’re smart) celebrate all holidays. Makes even an average day special. What a great way to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day!!

    fizzy cucumber and lime? Sounds delish! What a splendid way to celebrate the day.

    Hope everyone is feeling well and eating more. I would happily donate ten pound of fat if I could.

    I made the traditional corned beef, potatoes and cabbage, but it didn’t go over extremely well, mostly because the corned beef didn’t cook properly. I realized I didn’t have a pan deep enough to hold the meat and fully immerse it in water. Ah well. At least the kids ate the cabbage! Maybe next year I’ll make an “Irish” stew with soda bread.

    PS – your array of snacks look wonderful! I should do that, too. Next year. 364 days left to plan…
