St. Patrick's Day
Here in the States, you'd have to be living under a rock to not know that yesterday was St. Patrick's Day. My days of getting drunk on green beer in bars that I spent all day in are long over. These days, I much prefer to make good food shared with friends, and have a Guinness or two at home. My friend Audrey came up from Missouri for the day and we looked at my photos from my vacation to Ireland as we haven't seen each other in several months. We went out and had pizza for lunch, and then took a leisurely hike out at Neale Woods. It was gorgeous as always. We made a few pit stops, and came back to my house to cook Irish stew, bread, and drink Guinness. We did put one bottle of Guinness in the stew....of course! My best friend Keith came over after work, and we all gathered (with my family) to eat, drink, and be merry. It was a fantastic day. Hope yours was too!
