We had a St. Patty’s Day dinner tonight since I have to work on Wednesday and Dave’s parents were here today. I made corned beef for the 1st time…I never knew it was so easy to cook! I didn’t make cabbage (it probably wouldn’t go over well with the picky eaters) but I made roasted potatoes, “Aunt Jack Carrots” (glazed carrots with butter and brown sugar that my sister makes) and asparagus to go with it. Nice spring veggies!
Anyway while the corned beef was cooking Noah spied the cupcakes I had bought for dessert. I told him they were our dessert and the green “jimmies” on them were for St. Patty’s Day. OK – he went back to playing.
Later, after Dave brought him and Hannah out to the barn to show Pop-Pop how big the ducklings were getting, Noah showed Daddy the cupcakes. Dave acted surprised and asked him what they were for. He proudly said, “For Aunt Patti’s Day!” I hope my Aunt Patti smiles at that! 🙂
