Brrrr. Hoboken is usually hopping on Sunday afternoons, but today–even with it being Saint Patrick’s Day–I only saw sprinklings of pedestrians. It’s freezing! Every year, Saint Patrick’s Day seems to be a celebration not only of the Irish, but of the coming of spring. Let’s take last year. I specifically remember wearing a light coat that I eventually shed due to overheating! What’s up, spring? Where are you? Everyone is patiently awaiting your arrival!
To celebrate St. Patty’s today, Mitch and I are making corned beef and cabbage. (Which, we learned while in Ireland last year, is not a dish the Irish often eat! An Irishman explained that it would be like us eating turkeys–like we do on Thanksgiving–on a regular basis. Who knew? ;)) Mitch woke up this morning at the crack of dawn to start the slow cooker. Should be a fun night at home together!
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day, everyone! Check out today’s earlier post for our Ireland trip video. ;) I wish we were in the homeland right now!
