Happy St. Patrick's Day!

We're not very Irish, but it can be fun to observe St. Patrick's Day anyway.  It seems like we do it differently every year; we've never really found a tradition that has stuck.  I discovered years ago that I don't like corned beef and cabbage, and some of my children don't like it when I dye the food green. 

A few days ago I was at Aldi and I was looking at their selection of specialty cheeses.  We love cheese, especially affordable specialty cheeses at Aldi.  The Kerrygold cheeses caught my eye, and I put two and two together.  Irish cheese for St. Patrick's Day!  Why did I not think of this before?

I think this has a high probability of becoming a tradition.

Then, yesterday n my social media feed someone posted about Irish soda bread.  "I could make that," I thought.  "It even looks good."

It IS good!  I could make this a tradition too.  Irish soda bread and Irish cheese.  Works for me!  Happy St. Patrick's Day!
