…and the rest of the day to yourself……..(did you know that was the rest of that saying?)
This Irish-American mutt wishes you all a Happy St. Patty’s Day.
“May you live a long life Full of gladness and health, With a pocket full of gold As the least of you wealth. May the dreams you hold dearest, Be those which come true, The kindness you spread, Keep returning to you.” Irish blessing
No there is no corned beef & cabbage in this house, there never was. I was in Ireland for 3 weeks & never had it & don’t remember it being ‘featured’ either.
Of the things I do remember? They used coffee ‘press’ pots (probably not the technical term) but those cool looking pots that you use a press to get the grounds to the bottom of the glass pot. Either we were not talented or it doesn’t really work all that well.
I remember that virtually every place we ate had a different version of vegetable soup. I literally ate a million variations of vegetable soup from Dublin to Shannon.
I remember meeting wonderful people & seeing amazing places. Travelling on some tiny ‘roads’ & traffic jams (ok well animals blocking the road)
I’m lucky, I get to be of Irish descent every day & I don’t even have to wear green, since I have the red hair thing going.
They say everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, so enjoy your day of ‘being’ Irish today.
