Don't miss Mary Ellen's lovely fair celebrating St. Patrick's Day! I have to admit that this is one feast day I don't really "get into". I know about all the fun there is to be had and normally I would say, "Hey, who cares if it is a little overrun by the secular world---what a great opportunity to honor a saint!" But you see... I grew up in a town that was mostly Hispanic in population and there wasn't much of an Irish population to notice. Also...Husband is allergic to beer. Yep, I know...you've never heard of someone being allergic to beer. Neither had I (please...I'm from Texas). But he is...all kinds. Ale, light beer, lagers, etc.... And although I have made corned beef and cabbage in the past, we don't eat red meat anymore so that just leaves cabbage. Hmmmm. I will have to peruse the fair and see if there is something new to try (I'm betting there is! ) and I guess I'll leave the chicken tamales in the freezer.
