I am most definitely Irish – my maiden name is Cavanaugh – but I do not like the typical St. Patrick’s Day foods like corned beef, cabbage, or soda bread. If I was going to try to cook Irish food today, it would have been a lamb stew, although Rosie Girl and I are the only ones who really enjoy lamb.
The Senior meals today weren’t served at the normal location (the local VFW hall), but at the nursing home that actually cooks the food. It was birthday party day today as well as St. Patrick’s Day, so there were the normal clients plus the nursing home residents for the meal, party, and Bingo game. However, all we had to do was to pack up the meals for Meals on Wheels, so it was actually an easy day for us. I sat with three very nice ladies (one of whom I met for the first time today) for lunch, but I didn’t eat much because, not only did I not really like corned beef, but I also got a migraine right during lunch. Ick. I took my meds and managed to stay until the kids had played a couple of cards of Bingo (otherwise, they might have seriously mutinied).
We’ve had some glorious weather here (so I don’t understand the migraine today except that I did a marathon shopping day yesterday). It’s been in the 60s for the last few days and we’ve actually had the windows open!! I’m loving springtime!!
