St. Patrick's Day . . . . . .


A good day for baking Irish soda bread - I did this one last year 
so had better get moving in the kitchen before this day is over!

Where would I like to be right now? 
Back in the Emerald Isle of course - we had such a wonderful trip there last year.
Instead we're donning our green something or other and heading to a local
 Irish pub for a Guinness later.
Have fun if you plan to celebrate.

Here he is!  Bob, my always smiling, amazing guy of Irish descent - and so proud of it - enjoying his
Guinness yesterday at the downtown Hibernian pub - and waiting for the fish and chips to arrive. 
It was busy, crazy, we made new friends while waiting at the bar for a table, enjoyed the merriment of everyone 'wearing the green' (Bob wearing his Kitty O'Se's shirt from our lovely day last June in Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland), and all having a great time. We then came home, lit the fire, invited the neighbors over,  popped the popcorn. . . . . . . . and watched that hilarious set in Ireland movie, WAKING NED DEVINE!  All in all, a great St. Patrick's Day.


  1. Yes, you had better get in that kitchen!! It wouldn't be St. Patty's day if you didn't have soda bread.

  2. I would be happy enough Mary, to tear up that soda bread. Mmmmmm.

  3. Yum! When I saw that you published a post about soda bread, I was hoping to find a recipe. It looks delicious :)

  4. I planned to bake a soda bread...didn't happen. Hope that yours did! (It makes such great toast.)

  5. Oh a lovely idea for today. Hope your day was so happy.

  6. Another movie to keep in mind! So, did you wear green too? :) I love that photo of dear Bob. he looks so in his elements. ALMOST makes me want to drink that Guinness with him except, reality is I can;t stand ales or beer! lol. Never have liked the taste but a cold one sounds good on a hot day..although of course, in Ireland and UK they are not cold even. hahahah. My sounds assure me it's better as such too.


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
