Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
My mom was a Kennedy and the Ireland in my blood calls me to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day. Back in my younger days I spent many of the shamrock holidays at the closest Irish Pub rejoicing in my Celtic roots. The festivities mostly involved green beer, loud singing, and the occasional hang over.
When I became a mom my St. Patrick’s Day revelries evolved into building Leprechaun traps with my daughters. Some were extremely elaborate, but even so, we were never able to capture the elusive little man with the silly beard and hat. Fortunately, the girls always managed to snag a pile of his gold in the form of gold foil wrapped chocolates. After a breakfast of chocolate and Lucky Charms, (what else do you serve for breakfast on SPD?) I’d send them off to school with PBJ’s on green bread, a baggie full of green grapes, and a couple green cookies in their lunch boxes.
No St.Paddy’s day is complete without a corned beef and cabbage dinner. Toss in a few potatoes and carrots and you’ve got yourself a piece of heaven. I shouldn’t brag, but what the heck. I make one mean pot of corned beef and cabbage that always puts a smile on hubby’s face.
I have Irish roots, but I never search for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I’ve already found it…in my family.
