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.
My quest is to have the best blogs I can from this day forward. Now let’s see if I keep that promise. My goal had always been to provide needed information to others regarding many aspects of living in todays very confusing world, with a little entertainment and pretty pictures.
I want to give others ideas and shortcuts to living in a world that will rob you blind spiritually as well as financially. It was supposed to give definite tips to save money, offer suggestions to solve various lifestyle issues such as cooking, cleaning, decorating, gardening and crafting. I have really fallen short in this area because as my mother used to say “obviously, it’s too much like work” now.
Even though I have experienced the joys of motherhood myself, it was so many years ago this is definitely not a “mommy blog.”
I plan to have more recipes, gardening tips and photo enhancement tips from Photoshop, which I seldom use, Microsoft Photodraw the first photographic software I purchased and still us even though support stopped many years ago to Ulead PhotoImpact which has awsome particle effects like lighting and fog.
Thank you all for your patience and I hope you will enjoy the new, improved Po’ Girl Shines. I owe my faith and hope to Jesus. God bless you all. Peace to you all.
