Not green around the "gills" or green with envy. Just a bit green for St. Paddy's Day. I just learned that it's spelled "Paddy", not "Patty" for St. Patrick's Day. "Patty" is a girl...aren't you glad I shared that wisdom? Well, you all know I don't have a speck of Irish in me...Greek and German...but Jack has some and to celebrate I usually make the traditional corned beef. This year was no exception.
The meat was tender and very good. Some potatoes....carrots would have brightened the whole thing up but I don't like cooked carrots! I also made cabbage but for some reason forgot to click a pic....hmmm...maybe because I was eating instead?? I also made some Irish soda bread:
I took a walk in the Creepy Woods with Eddy to see if I could spy a Leprechaun or perhaps a pot of gold. No such luck for this unlucky Greek....I didn't even wear anything green today. (wasn't I suppose to get pinched or something?) I did see a shot of the Chicago river turned green. That makes me a bit homesick. Maybe next year I should tint our creek green! (of course this year it's still frozen) I hope everyone had a good day filled with yummy Irish food, Irish music, Irish proverbs, and maybe a bowl of Lucky Charms cereal...It's magically delicious...sort of like my Irish dish for today!
