St. Patrick's Day


Wednesday, March 17, 2010

I hope everyone has a Happy St. Patrick's Day. No one I know has a drop of Irish blood in us, but we go all out for this day.
This is how it started. Years ago a business that my DH knows, started serving corned beef and cabbage on this day. This went on for 20 years and then they stopped. We took it up and started having a St. Pat's lunch at my DH's business. This went on for several years but most of the people working there don't eat it now so we've stopped.
And now I have a St. Pat's dinner for family and a few friends. I make corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, onions, carrots, and soda bread. Usually something green for dessert.
Yes, this is a family tradition that started by accident but it's still fun.

    I have some Irish in me, but I don't celebrate. I didn't even remember to wear green! But I hope you and your family enjoy the celebration. March is a long month without any real holiday breaks.

I have Irish in me, but we don't really celebrate. :) If you haven't read my blog for today you need to at least read the first paragraph about my family history with Saint Patrick... yep, not the day, but the Saint... before he was actually "Saint Patrick" LOL
