I just found the best freakin' beer EVER. I don't care for Guinness -- too strong. but my "liquor lady" suggested I try this Guinness brand called Smithwick. It's AWESOME. Taste great, less filling . Anyway, it's not as strong, but it's dark and I really like it. I normally do the wine thing, but this stuff is awesome. Anyone ever hear of it?
My dinner is in the oven. I'm just waiting until closer to 5 to make the Colcannon and Boxty and finish up the Slieve. I hadda cook a pork shoulder for my Puerto Rican hubby -- he won't touch corned beef. He's lucky I like him a little
I tried this new dish for dessert -- Lemon Syllabub. It sounded great and I wanted to see what the family thought of it. If it's a hit I'm gonna make it a tradition. I sure feel for my sons' future wives -- they're gonna have a helluva time on this day -- WOOHOO! That's almost as good as the famous "Mother's curse".
Gotta go, more beer to be drunk

I hope everyone had a great St. Patrick's Day. All my family was here except the youngest daughter and my grandbaby Abbie. I believe everyone enjoyed dinner with brown sugar-glazed Corned Beef, oven roasted cabbage and apples, cheddar cheese whipped potatoes, irish soda bread and Baileys Irish cream pie. These were all new recipes I used except the Irish soda bread. The Baileys pie was a big hit with the adults with Irish Cream Coffee. I'm definetly feeling very Irishy tonite!!!!
May the hinges of our friendship never grow rusty...
Last night, I spent my St. Paddy's Day watching and taping two programs on my PBS station: "Great Performances", which was a broadcast of Loreena McKennitt's "Nights From The Alhambra", and "Visions Of Ireland". It's one of those shows that's done with a camera mounted on a helicopter. Very nice to watch.
