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!
We hope you all find your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
Roy & Kevin
