Holidays, Life

a wee bit irish

Last year on St. Patrick’s Day I think we grilled chicken. And I remembered sitting around in the evening discussing with my family how we were being kinda lame. We were ALL (part) Irish. Landon, my mom, and dad (thus all of us kids, and my kids.) And I made a mental note that next year we’d do something better.

DSC_0024 Better included an Irish menu, a little “Irish boy” for Kaden, Celtic music selected by my brother, and lots of green apparel 😉

We made Irish soda bread, cabbage, shepherd’s pie, and chocolate potato cake for dessert.


“It’s delicious, Kaden. Try the cabbage.”

She replied that’s why people were excited when stores began selling cake mixes. Yeah maybe… It was really good though.
