Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Had no idea it was today lol don’t keep track now that I’m not in school anymore. I don’t know if I’m part Irish or not but I know I have a lot of red hair in my beard mixed with the dark brown.
Quarter Irish, grandma's maiden name was Kelly. Family was from Derry County Ireland. Would love to get over there someday, although I don't think I would understand a darn word they said. Had to stop watching Peaky Blinders because it didn't have subtitles.
My wife is half Irish. We made our corned beef last weekend. She cooks it in the oven and adds extra spices. Comes out great! It was a really good corned beef this year. We're very picky about our corned beef. Hate when it's too fatty. Love a nice lean flat cut. We have it with Brussels sprouts instead of cabbage.
I talk to some folks in Ireland on a weekly basis through my work. They were excited to be off work today. Not so excited that the pubs are closed.
