You realize, don’t you, that St. Paddy’s Day falls on a Monday–this coming Monday, to be precise.
With that there’s really only one thing for us to do: party all weekend.
And by party I mean read books, whilst gnawing on chunks of soda bread, naturally.
In case you missed the first hundred times I mentioned it, these are my favorites:
- Amazingly easy soda bread — so easy, and so very, very tasty (hint: buttermilk is our friend!)
- Corned beef and cabbage, crock-pot style— I’m not the biggest fan of red meat. Tough red meet throws me right over the edge; so corned beef is always a little iffy. This recipe, however, has yet to let me down–or make me gag. It’s nothing but tender deliciousness. Also, the crock-pot allows you to simmer the celebration all day, as you work, or frolic, as the case may be. It’s a win all the way around.
Needless to say, I hope you have big plans for the weekend. I hope you partake of a little Irish fare . . . maybe dance an Irish jig or two. I hope the beverage flows with the conversation, and you’re blessed with the company of those whom you love most of all. In other words, I hope you find the true treasure at the end of that rainbow . . .
HAPPIEST OF WEEKEND WISHES, TO YOU!
