    Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

    Time to drink green beer, eat boiled dinners, and have a bit of the craic (Irish for "fun," not what you were thinking! ). As they say in native Irish:

    Is Éireanach gach éinne ar Lá Fhéile Phádraig!

    Translation: On St. Patrick's day everyone is Irish!

    I'm only 1/8 Irish.
    Dave is Norwegian, Irish (Gramma an O'Connor) and a very wee bit of Ojibwe.
    On Monday we are going to Three Lyon's Pub for my sister's b-day and will have an Irish beer and banger (sp?) then.
    We all love boiled dinner.
    Wishing everyone a good day whatever they do.

    Bangers and mash is a great Irish dish, especially if they use real Irish bangers. Last year I took a series of Irish baking classes, so I will be making Irish bread tomorrow with a friend. Wish I could share some with everyone here!

    We are going for my sister's 49th b-day. She assured me the chair will fit in. I looked at the menu on line and supposed to be authentic. It has been there a few years, we have just never been there.
    You have a good day planned.

    If they happen to have colcannon on the menu be sure to give it a try. It is essentially mashed potato that is spread out in a frying pan with lots of good butter and with cabbage mixed in. It is flipped when brown on one side, and then served much like a pancake is served here. It is delicious!!!

    An Old Irish Blessing

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind always be at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    and rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
