March 17, 2013--Happy St Patty's Day

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Good morning. This day makes me a little sad because it is my dad's birthday. He passed away about 8 years ago and not a day goes by that I don't miss him.

Today we would usually have corned beef and cabbage with red potatoes. In looking at how high in salt corned beef is, I won't be having it today. Instead I will celebrate with green veggies like broccoli, lettuce, cucumbers, peppers and zucchini. For fruit I will have green grapes and granny smith apples. I am also wearing my St Patty's Day socks and green clothing.

This is also the first year I won't be drinking green beer.

Enjoy your day.

    Good on you Patty for making today a green and healthy day! I know the pain of being a fatherless daughter. Our memories keep them alive....make some great ones in his honour!
