Happy St. Patrick's Day 2014!

March 17, 2014

Hi friends, there will not be a Makeup Monday this week because I wanted to wish everyone today a HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

I made on Thursday afternoon Irish Soda Bread and it came out really good.  It was so delicious and not dry at all.  Our good friend Mike gave me this recipe from his mom who was from Ireland.  I am not sure if he wanted me to share his moms recipe so I am sharing with you a few photos of the bread I baked.

This bread came out so good and we loved it so much that I'm going to make another loaf of it this afternoon!  We all love Irish Soda Bread and it tastes so good warm with butter spread on top.

We are going to have corned beef, potatoes and roasted brussels sprouts for dinner tonight and if you want to see my recipe for brussels sprouts you can find that HERE.  My husband, daughter and I love celebrating St. Patrick's Day each year and many years ago my husband and I went out with all our friends to the St. Patrick's Day parade in New York City and that was so much fun!  Now we usually stay home and watch the parade on TV!   

I now want to share with you an Irish Blessing that I like:

Wishing you a HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

Do you have any plans for today and how will you be celebrating?
