My wish for all of yawl is to have a very berry happy St. Patty Day.
Prince's little brother had his 54Th burpday Monday and he will be coming over to celebrate while his Sis is here.
Little brother Ed loves to cook outside and use his smoker. So, he has spent the day cooking lots of ribs and I am sure some other meat to bring over for dinner. His big Sis made a rice casserole and fixed some slaw and yesterday I used some of the raspberries picked last year to make a topping for a Fudge cake. The icing was white therefore the berries made it pink. I think he will not mind the color or I hope not.
I hear big Sis setting the dinner table and it is not even five 0'clock. Since I am usually the chief cook and have cooked each evening since Bep arrived, I am letting them handle the kitchen task this evening.
This morning Prince surprised me with a Thomas Kinkade St. Patrick's Day card.(My scanner is on the blink so I could not show you how pretty the card was, however it was a copy of his "Emerald Isle Cottage") Prince is forever doing little things to bring joy to my heart and day. Our first date was on this day just a few years back and oh what an Irish Blessing . Wee People and shamrocks only bring wonderful memories to my mind . The temperature today is a mirror image of that day, windy and cool.
I found a post card from Angelsonearth.com with an Irish Blessing and it reads;
MAY GOD GRANT YOU ALWAYS
A SUNBEAM TO WARM YOU,
A MOONBEAM TO CHARM YOU,
A SHELTERING ANGEL SO NOTHING CAN HARM YOU.
LAUGHTER TO CHEER YOU.
FAITHFUL FRIENDS NEAR YOU.
AND WHENEVER YOU PRAY, HEAVEN TO HEAR YOU.
The kitty justice is for all to enjoy a little green today.

Your cake sounds so good. Raspberries are my second favorite (blackberries have first place honor.) I hope you enjoy your company and St. Patrick's Day. I even remembered to wear green socks today.

You've stirred up my appetite, Lady Di! I think I'll have to heat up some Irish stew left over from yesterday (St. Paddy's Day)!

A belated Happy Birthday to Ed!

The description of the food you had for St. Patrick's Day left me with a watering mouth.

I greatly love the Irish Blessing at the end of your post!

Happy birthday to Ed.

I can't wait until Raspberry time--I will have to though. I do have some in the freezer.

Loved that particular Irish Blessing. I will have to borrow it.

BTW that little bird on the post is a Heron---not so little. LOL

The cake was sinfully rich. We had a great time but missed the kids as they were in Florida wearing jackets on their spring break. Peace

Lee
Ha at least this time I left you hungry as I have a tendency to be that way after reading all your good recipes. Peace

Duta
Ed would appreciate the belated happy. As a matter of fact when we sang Happy Birthday we sang Happy belated Birthday. Glad you liked the blessing and our menu. Peace

Thanks and I love raspberries but the pickin can get sticky. Borrow anything you wish on this blog site as I put everything here to share with friends. A Heron looked mighty little from the distance he posed from. Peace
