May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
- Irish Blessing
I love St. Patrick's Day. Although I am only part Irish, everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day, right? I wear green, I eat corned beef and cabbage and I hope that I find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, or just win the lottery, than I can buy the pot of gold, no rainbow needed.
What I cannot bring myself to do is eat a green bagel 'cause to me, here is something creepy about eating something that is intentionally meant to resemble mold. I know, it's an over-exaggeration, I have food issues. I don't drink a green beer, not appealing, but Irish Car Bombs, well now that's an entirely different story. I don't like Guinness and I don't like Bailey's, but together, they make a wonderful couple.
What I am really looking forward to is dinner with my mom tonight. She makes the best corned beef ever!!! And St. Patty's Day is the only time of year I get to eat cabbage and it's mom's and it's yummy. And the red bliss potatoes, drowned in butter. Ok, seriously slavating over here. Although this year, the meal may be a little healthier (mom has lost almost 50 lbs.), I can bet it will be just as yummy and I can't wait!!
For all of you that will be taking part in festivities today, be safe and have a Car Bomb for me!!
