SHAMROCKS



A bit of the Auld Sod, straight from Ireland itself, to wish you cool green passage and the soft green beneath your feet.


The little one and I have been cooking for a little family dinner tonight---we've strung fresh beans for stir-frying with garlic, we've washed the potatoes (Yukon Golds---not quite Irish Potatoes, but the gold is appropriate), we have the celery strung and ready for stuffing, all crisp and crunchy (though I DO draw the line at GREEN cream cheese), and I've made a green version of Pink Salad, with baby marshmallows, crushed pineapple, sour cream, quartered grapes, and a tiny spinkle of dry lime Jello.
Tiny cupcakes with shamrock sprinkles and Homemade Ice Cream. The Murphy Side would be proud.

Chris will pick up a couple of roast chickens at Sam's at suppertime, for we're otherwise occupied the rest of this day with taking advantage of this sunshine.
Céad míle beannachta, Y'all!

Wow! I've never seen actual shamrocks before! Reminds me of the number of times I used to search the garden during childhood for four leaf clover (never did find any!)
