Happy St. Patrick's Day!

 
St. Patrick's Day has always been a big
day in our Irish household.  After all, if
you suffer the slings and arrows of the
effects of Murphy's Law all year, you
need one day to let loose!
 
 
We started our celebration last evening
since it is the last time we will all be
together for dinner for awhile.  Of course,
we had corned beef and cabbage with potatoes.
 
Did you know Murphy means potato?
 
 
Some delicious Colcannon.
 
More potatoes and cabbage...
 
 
And Irish Soda Bread.
 
We finished off the evening watching
Circle of Friends.  Today Brennan heads
back to Bloomington.  Katie Rose is here
for one more night ~ perhaps we'll watch
the Quiet Man...
 
Best wishes from the Irish-American Homestead
 
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hallow of his hand.
 
All the best,
 
~ Ellen
