Happy Saint Patricks Day. Hope you all got your fill of soda bread and green beer! I made my first corned beef last week. It isn't usually a favorite, but I put a yellow mustard/brown sugar glaze on it and suddenly it tasted like a Bar-B-Q Beef Bun. What a coup!
We celebrated Saturday by attending a parade in Utica. Apparently Dolly Parton attended this same parade in a blizzard years ago, so we figured it was worth checking out.
The pipe bands were great and Jim got in a tussle to get us some beads. (The upstate NY parade-goers are hard core about their free candy and schwag.)
On a related note (Scottish, not Irish), I think Graham needs a kilt in the family tartan. How cute would that be? Jim has already put in a veto, so somebody please throw some support behind this great idea. (And does anyone remember if we are Graham of Menteith or not? I vaguely remember we aren't, but how do we confirm?)
