St. Patty's Feast

Thursday is St. Patty's, and I have such a love for holidays, I am going all out.  While searching for dessert recipes, I found a yummy looking chocolate irish whiskey bundt cake on the following site.... http://www.chow.com/print/recipe/10892
What is going into our St. Patty's this year?  Corned Beef and Cabbage, scalloped potatoes, the above cake, and many fun games for the kiddos, and plenty o' Irish humor.  The corned beef is so easy.  You just throw it in the crock pot with onions, cabbage and beer, and turn it on.  It is ready at dinner time.  There are so many resources for St. Patty's games for the kiddos.  Here are a few... http://familyfun.go.com/st-patricks-day/st-patricks-day-games/, http://www.perpetualpreschool.com/holiday_themes/stpat_games.html
A great site for Irish Slang is http://www.irishabroad.com/culture/slang/irishslang.asp.  
A fun site for Irish Jokes is http://irishjokes.com/
Have fun, have a green beer, but be responsible, and celebrate a heritage who saw its share of opression  in the late 1800's.  No group was considered lower than the Irish in the 1850's.  Read about it at the following site....http://www.kinsella.org/history/histira.htm
And you can't celebrate the holiday without some wonderful Irish music.  So lively and delightful.  Go to Pandora.com and ask for St. Patty's mix, or celtic music.  It is so fun to listen to.

Hopefully I wasn't a dry shite in this blog, referrin you to a lot o sites....
