Wearin' O'the Green 2008

I'm having a low-key St. Patrick's Day today. Have things to do and it's just too chilly out there for me to stand around and watch the Parade.

But that doesn't mean there won't be any celebrating around here.

Yesterday, the hubster and I had our traditional corned beef dinner.

Tonight we'll be eating corned beef sandwiches and for dessert:

Yes, it's the traditional green Icebox Cake.
What? You didn't know this was traditional fare?
In the hubster's family it's the tradition and green Icebox Cakes have been made all over the country to celebrate today.

Lest you think I'm not in the spirit--I'll be proudly wearing green today:

Have a good one, everybody!

I'm thinking you could dye yarn with any leftover frosting. It looks like pretty powerful stuff. Enjoy the meal AND the parade. Happy St. Patrick's Day.

awww the green is a good look! I did notice you have a green thumb as well! But now we know why you put of the manicure.

No corned beef here. We have company right now. Sheesh.
