Erin go Braugh

Happy St. Patrick's Day

My grandpa died 4 years ago this month. He was a true Irishmen, in probably every sense of the word. At his funeral, we had shamrocks and a processional with a bagpiper. These shamrocks are the same ones from his service, growing contentedly in our kitchen. 

In honor of this day, I am listening exclusively to Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, and The Pogues...i.e. it is rocking.

Lunch was festive. Here are some photos to make you jealous:

 Irish Soda Bread

Corned Beef

Cabbage and Such

 What a lovely composition

 Dessert trio

Ginger Cake with Guiness

Now I am back at Aspen Grove, and we are going to watch The Secret of Kells. Perfect.
I hope your St. Paddy's day was just as grand.
