Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I am not Irish, but I married into an Irish family :).  Which means we're having corned beef with cabbage, potatoes, and carrots, along with soda bread. The soda bread is the most important part, as it is my favorite! Right now the corned beef is slow cooking in Guinness. I am going to try and remember to take pictures of our Irish feast tonight to post...

Check out my windowsill herb garden. I think the basil is still in shock from being potted, but otherwise they have all grown a bunch and are looking good. My shamrock plant is doing great, I love it! It has a lot of new blossoms, which are hard to see since they blend into the wall... I haven't found a pot I like for it yet, so it's still in it's original container.

So what are you doing to celebrate? Going out to party and drink green beer? Staying home and cooking your own Irish specialty? Or do you think St. Patty's Day is an overrated holiday and you ignore it all together?


  1. We have beef and Guinness stew on the stove and are snacking on soda bread while we wait! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  2. Yum, that sounds great. Hope your finger feels better soon. I forgot to take pictures of our meal but it was good. Soda bread was the best part of course :).


I heart your comments!
