Green Day


Do you celebrate St. Patrick's day?

The closest I am to being Irish is the fact that my mother's name is "Patricia".  When I was young, I "celebrated" by making sure I wore green to school so I wouldn't get pinched.  After I got married I adopted this fun holiday by gathering family together and eating.  That is what St. Patrick's Day is all about.  Eating and drinking.

Tonight we had family over for a traditional dinner of corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, carrots and bread. This is the easiest dinner on the planet for all you have to do is throw the corned beef and veggies in the crock pot in the morning and let it cook all day.  I must say it was yummy.
Crock pots rock.

 For dessert, we had green mint ice cream topped with with some chocolate mint cookies.
Cookies on a vintage three tiered tray.
I pulled out my green and splattered them throughout.
