Busy Saturday

Today I am going out to a flea market with Rosa then returning to cook a "Pre-St. Patrick's Day Meal" as a dual birthday dinner for both Marta and my son (both born on the same day!) I will be doing an authentic Irish Lamb Stew with a Potato & Leek Soup. I am also doing an Irish "appetizer" of glazed beets and egg on sour dough toasts. There is also plenty of good Irish whiskey (single malt no less) and some rich, tasty stouts (not that watery Guiness). So a good time should be had by all.

So I don't have a lot of time for a clever post. Instead I am just going to put up a couple more of my own "captions". I'm afraid they're not as good as the "blow-up doll" one, but hopefully they will at least prompt a grin:

  1. I hope your Irish whiskey is Buahmills KD!

    1. I have some 16 year-old Bushmill's Single malt and a virgin bottle of 12 year-old Redbreast. But I know what you mean about the Bushmill's.......it is a bit of amber-colored heaven.

      (There's also some Paddy's for the Irish Coffee with dessert.)

    1. We did. We met someone we know and got a great deal on a dark green Depression glass butter dish......just in time for St.Patrick's day!

  4. Your meal sounds delish! Quite a coincidence for both children to be born on the sane day, and a good reason to celebrate!

    Hugs,

    1. Thanks, Hermione. Just to clarify though.....Marta is my next door neighbor.....and she's more than 10 years older than me. ;-)

      I am very happy with how everything turned out and will be repeating the soup and appetizer for the 17th to go with the corned beef and cabbage. I also made honeyed parsnips, but I am not going to do that this Saturday, even though everyone liked them. Three of the recipes were new for me and so I learned a bit as well.
