Love that expression! Of course I am part Irish. Once when I was a kid I found a $10.00 bill floating in the breeze while out walking on Saint Patrick’s Day and that expression came to mind. Of course to my knowledge, that was the only St. Paddy’s Day I had this kind of luck of “found money.” We’ll see when the Mega Millions is drawn tonight!
I swore I was not going to bother making another Irish meal and had the urge for boiled dinner or corned beef and cabbage. Apparently it’s not really a traditional dish of Ireland, according to my Irish cookbook “Irish Pub Cooking.” So glad I kept it. I sold a number of my cookbooks I didn’t use very much before I moved at the end of 2015. I like the simple recipes in this book. Beef in Stout with Herb Dumplings, Bleu Cheese & Walnut Tartlets, Savory Oat Crackers and my favorite comfort food, Colcannon, often served around Halloween. I would never mix in lucky coins or charms for someone to choke on, though some follow that tradition. Basically mashed potatoes with cabbage and scallions. Very yummy. If you like potato and onions you should like this.
