Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Posted on March 22, 2023


In Boston, where I live, everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. I love celebrating holidays, no matter what the source. I love learning about different cultures. Except I’m not a fan of traditional Irish food.

Mr. Ken is Irish. He loves to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by eating the traditional corned beef and cabbage meal. I breathed a big sigh of relief this year since he decided to pick up a premade meal at our local food store.

Here it is:

Not only did this meal have corned beef and cabbage, it had boiled potatoes, pearl onions and turnip. The piece de resistance was the spicy brown mustard. I can’t think of any food I like less than any of these items. Hah, and he makes fun of me for my scrambled egg whites and kale. 🙂

So what about you? How did you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?
