Happy ST. Patrick's Day to all. We are invited out for dinner tonight, but don't think it'll be Irish. We did have friends over earlier in the week and I did the corned beef dinner.

Wow, Bucky, I didn't know, probably just as most of the Roman folks here... I will try to spread the words so there maybe a St. Pat's day celebration also in Rome in the near future... Grazie for the history lesson!!

I've been eating corned beef and cabbage for three days, and DH has been eating corned beef sandwiches. Tonight we're going out with friends to celebrate the birthday of one our crowd who's a St. Pattie's Day baby.
I think I'll have a steak.

[quote=buckytom]happy st. pat's day to all!!!

callie, what brand of butter and cheese did you get?

bt ~ Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter ($5/8 oz ) and Kerrygold Dubliner cheese ($5/7 oz ). I drove 110 miles to get to the market - and I was so surprised to find these items!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, too, to everyone! I'm pretty authentic...used to be Caitlin Maire O'Neill from County Cork, Ireland. Doesn't get much more Irish than that. Just don't have red hair. Our youngest son has bright red hair, so he has enough for both of us.

We're having corned beef and cabbage, mashed taters, N.Y. Times bread, and Chocolate Emeralds (chocolate/green creme de menthe cookie-like bars) for dessert. Have some Killian's Red in the fridge gettin' nice and cold. That should just about do it!

Yep, bucky, I knew about St. Patrick and his non-Ireland life. I wrote a column about him several years ago explaining his history. Quite a few of my readers were surprised.

I want corned beef & cabbage so bad I can't stand it!! I'm the only one in the house who will eat corned beef so I don't cook it.

Tonight we're having ham, baked cabbage, pineapple cass., & biscuits. If I have any blackberries in the freezer we'll have cobbler, if not, we'll just go without dessert.

alcohol & naps 4 me today. missed that parade, though after our last (steelers) parade i was trying to get to school & shoved through a crowd of 250,000.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
