PICTURE SHOW: ST. PATTY'S DAY IN VA


First off, believe it or not I am posting this blog while riding on the Acela Express Amtrak train from D.C. headed towards Penn Station in NYC...oh the wonders of modern technology! :)

Anywho, I realize this is a wee bit late, but I hope you all had a very Happy St. Patty's Day!

I'm not Irish, but growing up, my parents always cooked a yummy, traditional St. Patty's Day dinner with corn beef, new potatoes, cabbage and horshradish cream died green, of course! We even colored my nephew's milk green for fun! :)

Followed by blarnie stones for desert, which are chocolate cupcakes with marshmallow icing and shredded coconut died green sprinkled on top...we made a few with green sprinkles for those who don't like coconut, as seen below!

That said, I haven't been home for it in some time, but this year my parents and I were at my older sister, brother-in-law and nephews home in VA on our cross country road trip, and we, along with my uncle who lives outside D.C., all celebrated with the traditional dinner...it was delish! :)

Since many of you said you enjoy my picture show adventures, below are some pictures from our fun festivities for your viewing pleasure!

Also, my youngest nephew just LOVES, and I do mean loves, to clean! He has since he was about 2 years old and even vacuums, believe it or not! So, here he is cleaning and then being his silly self sporting one of the green St. Patty's Day wigs at the end of the night! :)

Hopefully, that was full of a little silly fun for you...hehe! I'll be back on Monday with another Look 4 Less and hope you all have a Super Sunday!

    We are part Irish, but pretty much no big party like yours, but the hubby and I do have corned beef and a guiness!

  3. Yummy! Looks like so much fun! I actually am Irish, but this year, I just wore green! I didn't have anyone else to share a St. Patty's Day dinner with so I didn't make one! (Corned beef and cabbage for days and days? no thanks!)
