but I do love to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.
I usually cook something special at home,
set the table with my vintage forest green Anchor Hocking glassware,
and wear something green so I don't get pinched
Last year I made corned beef brisket.
It was delish.
This year I'm going to try making Irish stew.
Looks pretty darn tasty doesn't it.
You can get the recipe here.
You have to have green beer on St. Patty's Day
(even if, like me, you only have a sip or two)
And a proper toast for the occasion:
"Saint Patrick was a gentleman,
Who through strategy and stealth,
Drove all the snakes from Ireland,
Here's a toasting to his health.
But not too many toastings
Lest you lose yourself and then
Forget the good Saint Patrick
And see all those snakes again."
And a few of my favorite emerald images from Pinterest in honor of the Emerald Isle.
