Day 283 ~ Love That Green Once a Year!

Chicago River ~ St Patrick's Day
for Elisabeth, big smile.
Here we are St Patrick's Day 2012!  There was a time that the last place you would find me on such a day would be at here at home.  But now a days, I feel it's the safest place to be.  Who wants to be out on the road, when there's a good chance someone is going to be drinking and driving tonight.

I am that person you all know all too well... Irish one a year!  

I Have always worn green, since a child, and as an adult I make sure to either make corn beef or a Shepard's pie-  nummmy!  This year it was my turn to make dessert... well first off, I should not have left it for the day of to search for a recipe!!!  Bad planning!  Note to self, look up recipe at least a week in advance for better planning, shopping and cooking. 

I looked for a recipe online for a good hour.  Did you know that most Irish desserts have either Bailey Irish Cream Liquor, Irish Whiskey or Guinness Beer?  Well normally I would have any of these spirits on hand [wink, wink], but not today.  Soo, I went pantry shopping and after a little bit I came out victorious!  Gorilla Bread it is!!  This is my version of Monkey Bread, which is tasty too.  I just add a few extra secret ingredients to the recipe... and VIOLA!  Everyone's favorite... an all time winner every time!

I love bagpipes, don't you?   Ok... I'll give you this one... I agree, either you love them or you hate them.  

Here's, wishing you all had a safe and Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Cheers!  

May you live as long as you want, And never want as long as you live.  ~ Irish blessing
Walls for the wind, And a roof for the rain, And drinks beside the fire --  Laughter to cheer you And those you love near you, And all that your heart may desire!  ~  Irish blessing
May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past.  ~ Irish blessing 
Blessings to all!!

82 days to go...
