Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

I hope everyone was lucky enough to enjoy their fill of corned beef like we did here In The Middle Of Nowhere! I kept it simple this year...corned beef, colcannon, fried cabbage and roasted the carrots in the same pan I did the meat. We had strawberry shortcake for dessert...not very Irish, but very good.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day family and friends!


Bradford pear tree in the front yard...it won't look this pretty if it rains tomorrow.

Hi Marigene,

Your Irish meal looks delicious!! I'm not a big corned beef fan, but I love cabbage and colcannon. I never say "no" to strawberry shortcake, either. :)

Your Bradford Pear tree is beautiful. Thanks for sharing and Happy Seasonal Sunday!

Looks great! I didn't take any pictures of our dinner, because I had two starving teen aged boys who were demanding to be fed...pronto! thanks for stopping by an leaving a comment about my table. I love dishes and I am just starting out on the tablescaping adventures. I have had lots of inspiration, especially from you.

Have a wonderful weekend!

How beautiful that tree is! Ours won't bloom till May. You live in the tropics, LOL!
I hope you enjoyed your corned beef. I like the left overs, hash and Ruben done on the Panini.
Beautiful here today, in the 60's!

Everyone's blossoms are so beautiful. We got dumped on with 6 inches of snow but fortunately we didn't have any trees in bloom so they didn't get ruined!

We didn't have corned beef this year. My husband really doesn't like it and I'm not cooking it just for me. Yours looks delish!

Mmmm yummm! I'm trying Irish food myself now... wow, it's been so long; since I grew up in Astoria-Queens in an Irish-Italian neighborhood we always went out for St. Pat's to Manhattan to see the parade and than went for Irish food...my dad loved trying different foods. Also for the St. Genaro, the Italian St. I totally love corn beef. Your table is lovely too. I translated the sweet pepper caz many years ago there was no allspice, but a Jamaican sweet pepper that grew here too, so I translated my Mil's old recipe, but just add more allspice and it'll be fine. Have a great weekend. Hugs,
FABBY
