Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!! Some of you know that I am half Irish (the other half is Lithuanian). My father was born in St. John's, Newfoundland of parents who emmigrated from Ireland. I know I get my fair skin and hair from that side of the family, and no doubt my temper as well☺!! Tonight we're having guests for corned beef, cabbage and Irish-American Soda Bread from King Arthur Flour. You can find the recipe here.
I forgot to take my camera off the landscape setting, so the photo is a little blurry. I so love cooking with King Arthur Flour and their recipe's are top notch! They also have a blog which will take you step by step through many of their recipes. They are a 100% employee-owned company and pour their heart and soul into a quality product. Hey...I'm not even getting paid to say this! I was telling Mr. Squash this morning that before retiring I was lucky to use up a five-pound package of flour in 6-12 months - so far I've been through about one per month! My next challenge will be to make my own bread and pizza crust.
I'm getting close to being able to show you two of my secret quilting projects, but until then, here is a nice little surprise that greeted us on one side of our house the other day - daffodils! There also appears to be maybe crocus beneath them, but they have yet to bloom. Spring is definitely in the air here if not literally a few days away!
