Topsy Turvy World

My world is a bit topsy turvy right now. I haven't had much time to blog, especially now that my work has blocked all access to blogs and I can't sneak in a post or a comment or two during our slow times. The audacity of it all, they actually expect me to WORK at work? ;)

Thank you all for the fun comments you've left me on my Welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party post. I will do my best to stop by your blogs and join in your party festivities too!

So, based on the feedback I received during last week's Favorite Ingredients Friday post, I'm going to have the St. Patrick's Day themed recipe exchange this coming Friday, 9 March, so that you all have time to go grocery shopping and try out an Irish recipe or two by the time St. Patrick's Day arrives.

Do you like the button I made? It's actually from a picture that we took at our rehearsal dinner in Ireland nearly 4 years ago. The restaurant served us Irish coffee with this neat nutmeg shamrock on the top.

Okay, specifics for the recipe exchange, the recipes can be Irish dishes, or even just green foods/beverages. I'm excited about this one. I have a beautiful Irish cookbook that Oronzo got for me while we were in Ireland. I'll have a tough time deciding which Irish dish to share with you! :)

Okay, thanks for hanging in there with me, despite the fact that I haven't been as active of a blogger as I like to be lately.

I used to work in an Irish pub and had to make shamrocks on the top of the Guinness - St Patrick's Day made for a very busy night!

You were asking how I managed the shamrocks - let the Guinness settle for a minute then just carry on pouring it. When you get to the top, you have to move the glass to make a shamrock mark in the head of the ale. For Valentine's Day, I would do hearts as well!
