St Pattys!

St. Pattys!

(Written before St. Patricks...I'm just finally posting it) Worst blogger ever award??
Anyone who knows my family or my husband knows that Christmas is a REALLY. BIG. DEAL. So big in fact that you would think this was the only holiday that was celebrated but in fact my mother is the master of making any holiday great. I intend to do the same with my own family.
I remember my most favorite St. Patrick’s Days when I was about 10 and my little sister, Abby was around 5 or 6. I remember my dad taking us to the movie store so we could pick out a video to watch and since it was the night before St. Patty’s we found one appropriate for the holiday. It was called Rumplestilskin and I loved this movie so much I probably watched it 12 times before we took it back. I can remember being so excited to watch it I made a song about the movie and on a certain home video I am sitting at the kitchen table holding the beloved movie in my arms, with my eyes closed, singing this song I had made up. To make it even more embarrassing I am in my favorite long pink nightgown that was so see through you can see my underwear and my hair was in tight curlers. I was a special child. Anyway, Abby was way into leprechauns and really wanted to catch one. She even made a trap and made a trail of cabbage to it so the leprechaun would find it. The next morning my mom had removed the cabbage and left a box of lucky charms in the trap instead (she is wonderful). Then on this special day we ate a huge meal of corned beef and cabbage and usually for dessert we would enjoy my great-grandmother’s famous recipe of lime dessert! (Chocolate crust with a sort of key lime frozen cream topping, it is still to this day one of my favorites).
So naturally last year before Brady and I were married I personally made him his FIRST (can you believe that???) corned beef and cabbage meal. I am not sure if he really liked it or was trying to be nice. He did agree to the tradition again this year and I have a good lookin chunk of meat in our fridge and a head of cabbage. I think I am going to mix it up though and do Reuben sandwiches (bring on the sauerkraut!!!!) and roasted cabbage and possibly try a key lime yogurt pie for dessert. Cross your fingers I don’t burn anything!!
