Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

We love St. Patrick’s Day! (See the subtle picture above.) For this post, we share a variety of things to help you celebrate this fun holiday.

BANNER:                                                                                                                                                      We make banners for everything! We took these St. Patrick’s Day wall decorations found at a dollar store, hole-punched the sides and strung them together with green and gold ribbon to make this banner. The hats are cardboard and the shamrocks are made of foam.                                   Cute, simple, & economical!

CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE:                                                                                                               We put our new slow cooker to the test by making delicious corned beef and cabbage. Very tasty and really pretty easy. Here is Martha Stewart’s recipe:

MINTY CHOCOLATE PUDDING:                                                                                                              For a minty treat, add some peppermint extract (to taste) to instant or pre-made chocolate pudding. Want a more grownup dessert? Add creme de menthe. Top with whipped cream and  a sprig of mint! Delicious!!!

 STRAIGHT FROM DUBLIN AIRPORT:  Who knew, right?

JOKE OF THE WEEK:                                                                                                                                       What do you get when you cross poison ivy with a four leaf clover? A rash of good luck!

A GREAT SONG:                                                                                                                                               We love the song “Four Green Fields” by the great Makem and Clancy. Check out this video:

AN IRISH BLESSING:                                                                                                                             Kevin’s mom, Irene, who we lost on April 3rd, 2014, sent us this traditional blessing in a                 St. Patrick’s Day card in 2010.

 We extend this beautiful wish to you!
