Happy St. Patrick's Day from our pub to yours!!
Happy St Patricks day. To all my Irish friends
Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day! Going to make a bunch of soda bread tomorrow to give to our neighbors.
Hey Skip, send some up this way.
Well! We sure do like to get started early around here! Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Daoibh! Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh!
Haven't the foggiest what you're saying there Tink but I hope you have a fantastic St Patrick's Day both you and Herself
Would love to share it. Maybe the best I can do is share my Aunt Bess's recipe with you if you would like it.
Thank you so much Piglet! It's "Happy St. Patrick's Day," and "May the blessings of St. Patrick be yours/be on you."
Dan!!! I would LOVE Aunt Bess's recipe if you are willing to share it!!
It just "looks" lovely in writing
Yes we started a bit early, as our parade was on Saturday - what a fun day...even the sun came out for the parade! Hmmmm...not quite sure why the photo is upside down...I promise we were still quite right side up at that time
LOL. I wondered about that.
The local pub here, Hagan O' Reilly's (lovingly known as the HOR house ) has been MOBBED since 4:00 pm on Friday. They did close at 2:00 am each morning but are back open at 11:00 am. CRAZY crowded. We aren't going near the place. LOL.
Herself brined the beef, and it's simmering now. We'll have the full meal tomorrow. Although some people consider St. Patrick's Day to not be Lent, I wasn't raised that way and it's weird for me to get overly "partied" during these 40 days. Weird too as I'm as far from religious as you can get, but old "rearing" dies hard, I guess…
Irish is a beautiful language, isn't it? It's the very murder to learn though! Between the accents and other punctuation marks, and the complete change in sound the letters make between combinations, I'm surprised it ever became a written language. You can certainly tell that it was an oral language only for ages.
Beginning the prep for tomorrow night's dinner. Of course Aunt Bess's Irish soda bread on the menu. Care to guess the entre?
That is just me cooking motivation!
Step 2...(besides pouring anotherGuinness
In the oven...only have to reheat it. My DW Sally and I are 50% Irish. Er go Alex is a bit of a Colleen as well. Shepard's Pie, for entre! Crackers with Ballyshannon Irish cheese, wine, Guinness, Jamison, and a delicious Irish pear salad rounds out the evening. Blessed to be spending the evening together. DD is a veggie so made a small pie with faux meat!
What time shall I come round?????
Looks like 6:30 will do
Looks delicious, Dan!
Will let you know if it is good. First time making it. Soda bread done, have to work on Irish Flag Salad this afternoon. Don't think it is really Irish and a friend of mine from the old sod said there was no such thing. It has oranges, feta cheese and pears to simulate the flag.
Irish or not, that salad sounds delicious!!! Everything looks tasty, Dan!
