More Irish!

Last week we had son #1, Tim, and Lynne to dinner for corned beef, one of his favorites. Lynne politely tasted the dinner, and then nuked her own which she wisely brought along. Next year I’ll have a back up!

Son #2, Dan, is headed down from Manchester, and cb and c two weeks in a row is a bit much, so I dug out a recipe from a friend. This beef stew uses typical ingredients with the addition of Guinness and …..mystery ingredient…. PRUNES!! The stew was delicious when we tasted it at Jean’s, and I hope mine turns out as well. Oh yes! Today is also Dan’s birthday. That’s another story! Happy Birthday, Dan.


Guinness stew in the pot. Mystery ingredient ready to add!

I’ve also made a few adjustments to the bread recipe. For the last batch I substituted buttermilk for the sour milk, brown sugar for the refined, and traded out 1 cup of whole wheat flour. This batch was my favorite!

May the road rise to meet you;

may the wind be at your back.

May the sun shine upon your face,

and the rains fall soft upon your fields.

    I like how you ended with the poem. Also I LOVE when people include a photo with their post – makes it so much more pleasurable to read.
