Go Green!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I don't remember St. Patrick's Day being a big deal when I was growing up, but to my kids it's the next best thing to the 4th of July. So, being the indulgent mother that I am, as they were donning the green this morning, I was in the kitchen making this:

Green cakes

which made Robbie go like this:


Too bad the kids have school today because around here it's perfect weather for the St. Patrick's Day parade. I think after school we might hit the one McDonald's in the whole city that has Shamrock Shakes. To find these minty treats in your area, check out

Thought I'd share a little Irish humor with you this morning...

Q: What's Irish & stays out all night?
A: Patty O'Furniture

Q: How do you know an Irishman is having a good time?
A: He's Dublin over with laughter.

Q: How did the Irish jig get started?
A: Too much to drink and not enough bathrooms.

May the luck of the Irish be with ya! How do you plan to celebrate today?

And top o' the marnin' to ye too Lassie!
I will be working a double shift today, even though I should still be home, sick in bed. And I'll be worrying that my son made it through last night ok because he turned 21 at midnight and his Frat brothers took him out drinking.

Love the humor! hat's right up my alley. ;)

We're not doing anything huge to celebrate. I hid chocolate gold coins for the boys, Corned Beef is already in the slow cooker, we have Irish beer in the fridge.
Wearing green, Irish music...that's about it, I guess. I'd love to go to a parade one day! (in Chicago)
