jack's 1st st. patty's day
2007WELL, ST. PATTY's DAY has come & gone and we have the leftovers of corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, turnips & soda bread to prove it! It was a day that completely sneaked up on me. I didn't buy the corned beef until yesterday morning, I TOTALLY forgot to wear green and I couldn't find my Bing Crosby Irish CD. :( BUT, for the 3 hours that the corned beef boiled and wafted it's familiar scent throughout the whole house, I was feeling sentimental about the tradition that I remember so well growing up. And Jack downed the food like he's been waiting for it all his life. It must be in our blood. Oh wait, it is!
