Tea and Ireland

 In 2001, I had the privilege of visiting Ireland. 

 The Irish countryside - an amazing 40 shades of green; from the air, it looks like a patchwork quilt!

A quaint Irish town

I've heard that everyone is a little bit o' Irish on St. Patrick's Day. I know that I enjoy making "Irish" goodies in my kitchen; how about you?

 Corned beef and cabbage and all the accompaniments (carrots, potatoes, onions) - we Americans think this is THE quintessential St. Paddy's Day fare, accompanied, of course, by green beer!

 Tea with shamrock sugar cookies

Irish soda bread scones

Orange Chocolate Chip Drop Scones
The scones aren't Irish, but the placemat and napkin (lace from Ireland) are!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
