I like to be cautious on St. Patrick’s Day so I prevent any pranks by wearing my special “Do Not Pinch” shirt. This picture is from 2012 but Erik and I actually wore the same shirts today, but didn’t think to take a picture…
Yesterday I made Pistachio Cake for St. Patrick’s Day. Since I didn’t have time to make corned beef and cabbage, I made Oriental Cabbage Salad with ramen noodles today! I know it is a bit of a stretch for St. Patrick’s Day, but at least it uses cabbage…and cabbage is green! Also, as a college student, ramen noodles are in generous supply!
I do have some Irish blood in me and I am quite proud of it! I like to think dying my hair red makes me even more Irish. However, I didn’t utilize the “Kiss me, I’m Irish” ploy today and since I don’t drink alcoholic beverages, I drank IBC® Root Beer instead. My Lucky Charms® cereal box was empty so I should have planned for that. I did pass on drinking any green milk–that’s just gross even if people claim the food coloring doesn’t change the taste.
The closest song I could find to being anything Irish, lucky, or green is “I’m Just a Lucky So-and-So” sung by Ella Fitzgerald. I really do like this fun little song! And it’s an extra bonus that the album art from the album Fine and Mellow is green!
