Happy St Patrick's Day! My mother's family is of Irish descent & I live north of Boston, so St Patrick's Day is definitely a thing around here. My grandfather's family settled in northern Vermont during the 19th century Irish immigration. We have very little actual ethnic heritage in any of my family but once a year, my mother and grandfather have corned beef & cabbage.
I actively avoid corned beef and cabbage.
Honestly, I can't even be in the house when they have it. I'm glad they love it and somehow feel connected to their heritage or whatever but really, I just can't. I'll take my green beer and curried chips, thank you very much.
Today is the last of the green/Irish mix and match sets. Not sure what I'll do next. Maybe something bright and spring-ish....even though we have 20 inches of snow here. Again. Anyway, enjoy your St Patrick's Day and hopefully (HOPEFULLY!!!!!!) spring is around the corner!
