Spring? Some day ...
The ice is out!
Finally I sense spring is coming to the Muskoka River. The ice has finally disappeared – it's the first time we've seen running winter since December. Yes, the snowbanks are still piled high but I have faith they will eventually disappear.
Maybe even in time for next year's freeze-up.
We're having a St. Patrick's Day pot luck at work today and folks could bring anything they wanted with one caveat: it had to be green.
This is my potato salad. Mmm, mmm, good!
(I know. It looks like something the dog barfed up. I'm wondering how much I'll be bringing home tonight...)
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Oh, and here's the pix of our pot luck stuff, as per Harry. We've got Irish Stew, homemade Irish soda bread, spinach salad, Caesar salad, green broccoli and chicken salad, my disgusting potato salad, spinach dip, green grapes, Irish cheese and my friend Jason's incredible Pineapple Fluff (sadly hidden by the red lid). It was all yummy and Deb, you missed out on a fine Irish feast!
By the way, this joke is courtesy of my friend Sarah who is as Irish as Irish comes.. she even painted her nails green for today. She recommends saying "Whale Oil Beef Hooked" with an Irish accent.
That's how you'll feel after eating my potato salad.
