Happy St. Patty's Day...

Top of the mornin' to ye....
Kathleen that is CEO of CUISINE KATHLEEN
has an annual
St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl 
and I've played at her party for a few years.
St. Patrick's Day is March 17th

A beautiful tulip field in from the web.
I've decided to add photos from some of my past St. Patrick's Day posts
with my newest one for this year.

this particular
 St. Patrick's Day ,
we were out shopping and when we got hungry, we bought a
LONG sub sandwich and took it home.

Mr. Sweet and I shared this sandwich, which we loved...

 Vanilla Bean ice cream and frosted sugar cookies

I just LOVE this cute cup and I bought it at
a dollar....:)

the beautiful green stem ware belonged to my mother.

We have only 8 and never use them...

maybe one of the grands will want them.

Pretty little Pottery Barn candle holders from my girl, Stacy Leigh...

Orange Cranberry scones from the recipe of
Scones are small British quick breads of  SCOTTISH origin.
They  are especially popular in the United Kingdom, 
United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand

"long enough to hide your Lucky Charms"
hahhhaaa....I just love that.

No IRISH table would be complete without
1 and 1/2 oz. GOOD Irish whiskey
1 teaspoon Brown sugar
6 oz. hot coffee
Heavy creme
Combine that good whiskey with the sugar and coffee in
an AWESOME mug, stirring to dissolve.
Float cold, whipped, sweet creme on top.
Sip slowly and enjoy to the very last drop. favorite Irish table...
casual...picnic style...
the bright green mixed with the luscious turquoise
is my favorite color combination (mixed in with black and white, of COURSE..:)
 Irish Stew and Irish Soda Bread...
sooo sir ree...
Irish potatoes made this stew plenty IRISH for me.

 The above table of 2015 was, by far, my favorite of all time...
Spicy Irish Soda die. for.

...more Irish Stew and
Irish Kissing Balls...
 My mama's recipe for Chocolate Pie
and a GREEN donut...
gotta love it

 ...another Irish Coffee...

 LOVE, bj

  5. How fun and festive Bj! St. Patty's day is a lot of fun.

  6. I love all your greens, and especially your mama's green stemware! You should use it and enjoy it :) I have never had Irish coffee. I remember as a kid getting a spoonful of whiskey as a sore throat and cold remedy. It put me off the stuff for the rest of my life! Lol

    1. I'm with you Kathleen , my step-grandmother would pour out some of the bottle of whiskey and fill it with peppermints!! And one time she poured a dose down me and I promptly threw it back up!!! Double Yuck but hey we survived !

    2. hahhaa....i don't like the taste of it, either..alone...but a wee bit in this luscious creme is delish...I have a chest cold right now and am about to make myself one ...or two....or.....

  7. Love your Irish post on St Patty's Day. I lost my little sister on St Patty's day a few years ago, so it is hard to celebrate myself, but love to see others ideas and joy coming across the blogospere. Your decorations and sayings warmed my heart.

  8. How fun...just plain happy and fun! Loved it BJ! Creative and playful..sure wish you could share all that gorgeous food!!!

  9. (((((HUGS)))) and LOVE, and yes I meant to shout it, it's a long way from Ca. to Tx😘.

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  12. What FUN, BJ! You're really got your green goin' on. I'm glad you included some past photos as many were new to me. Loved seeing your shamrock plant as it reminded me of one my Mom had a long time ago.

  16. I'm loving your "wearing o' the green" in this post. And it's a good reminder about the soda bread. I need to dig out my recipe. We've been on the road and it doesn't seem possible St. Paddy's day is here!

  17. So happy to see Kathleen on line for the annual crawl. Love all the goodies and green and rhymes and blessings you have here. I best buy some heavy cream because I have real good Irish whiskey! Hope you have a wonderful evening bj!

  18. It all looks so pretty. I need one of those Irish Coffees and a bowl of that stew and some ice cream and a cookie please?

  19. I hope I remember to wear green tomorrow

  20. I hope to make an Irish tea bread tomorrow for John who's Swedish so it probably won't mean much. What a fun, beautiful post! I enjoyed every word and am fervently wishing for an Irish coffee...maybe it would knock me out. 🙃

  21. Oh my goodness you have so much inspiration here it is amazing! now I DO have some cabbage for tomorrow but I could go much further based on all of the ideas here! :)

  37. So much St. Pat's Day fun here bj! My favorite part is the card about the kilt hiding the lucky charms! Hilarious! Great round up of cuteness and Irish goodies!

  38. Oh I love the tour down memory lane. And I love your new header photo's.
    I want to change mine. You inspire.
    Have a wonderful Friday!

  39. bj, so fun to see all of your wonderful St. Patty's inspiration! We usually celebrate with a wonderful green meal, but this year our oldest daughters fil passed away and the viewing was being held. Didn't want to celebrate without her family. Happy St. Patty's to you!! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  40. Love those green glasses, bj, you should use them! I've never had spicy Irish bread! You have so many interesting things in this post! Perfect round up to celebrate the day! But me thinks you celebrate every day with your positive attitude! And I do not know how you stay so slim with all those sweets you show! Extremely jealous! Thanks so much for doing the crawl again this year, I appreciate your friendship!

  41. Boy, you really go all out for St. Patrick's Day. I have to admit that I didn't even wear green today, but no one we passed on the beach was in green either so we didn't get pinched.

    Thanks for sharing all of the fun St. Patrick's Day pics.

  42. Hi BJ,
    Looks like you had quiet a St. Patrick's Day at your house. Everything looks so pretty and green and I would just love your scones. Hope you have a very special week and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
