UPDATE: The winner is…Deb Brown!
As you might imagine, Saint Patrick’s Day is a big thing in our household! We celebrate our Irish roots (I’m Irish only by “injection”—a crude way to put it, but I married into it!), but my red-headed daughter and her kids love this day. They, of course, wear green and reminisce. My daughter spent many summers in Ireland with her relatives and has stayed close to Irish friends. The big thing we do is eat our Irish meals! I have to special order in Irish breakfast items like bangers and black and white pudding (not pudding at all—it’s sausage!), plus proper Irish tea, soda bread, and rashers (thick bacon)! Our dinner is easier—corned beef and cabbage with a huge mess of potatoes. I’ve been saving Weight Watcher’s points so I can indulge!
Notice what I left out of the celebrations? Yeah, no green beer. Likely, no alcohol at all. Neither of us is much of a drinker, and it’s a school night…so, no. And no, that’s not un-Irish. My late mother-in-law was a Pioneer (short for, Pioneer Total Abstinence Association of the Sacred Heart)—she had buttons and pins awarded to her for “takin’ the pledge” to never drink a drop.
