St. Patrick's Day

Irish Beef Stew

Oh, Paddy, dear, an' did ye hear the news that's goin' round?
The shamrock is forbid by law to grow on Irish ground!
Green eyes? Maybe?
No more St. Patrick's Day we'll keep, his colour can't be seen,
For there's a cruel law agin' the Wearin' o' the green.
Pistachio Cake
When law can stop the blades of grass from growin' as they grow,
An' when the leaves in summer time their color dare not show,
 Then I will change the color, too, I wear in my caubeen;
But till that day, plaise God, I'll stick to the Wearin' o' the Green.
Colcannon Irish Potatoes
Happy Feast of St. Patrick, everyone!

Just for fun, check out this little ditty.
If you let your kids watch this, you might or might not hear them singing later, "Give me a beer!" I'm just sayin.


  1. Dear Charlotte,
    Your little cupcake is so beautiful, I just want to squeeze her cheeks. "God love 'er." It's a little saying that an old University roomate from Newfoundland would often say to me. Not sure if she was Irish, but I'm sure it's close enough! *Blessings*

  2. Hi, Charlotte! Great pictures....did you get a new camera? Or did you use new light software to enhance them? Love the vividness and the color....perfect!;) Happy St. Paddy's Day. Blessings, G

    1. Nope. Same old camera. No enhancements. It was mostly cloudy today except for when I was making dinner and snapped these pictures. Thanks Grace!

    2. Well, great job! You're a true photographer. Don't be surprised if that first shot of the stew winds up on Pinterest.;). Still saying prayers for your brother and SIL....please do keep us all posted here. Blessings, G

  3. yeah, yeah, the baby's cute...

    that video was HYSTERICAL. Love geek humor.
