St. Patrick's Day cooking
I still feel under the weather (literally) but the vertigo has lessened. My doctor told me last year when I had it all summer long that it seems to come upon me either when there are severe weather changes or perhaps when a new allergy appears.
Judging from the ups and downs of temperatures we have had this year, I'd vote for weather changes!
Despite not feeling the best, I did manage to cook a St. Patrick's Day meal... sorta'...kinda'. I made meatloaf because that is very easy and just opened a can of corn for a side veggie. But I also made colcannon, which is a traditional Irish dish that we love. I started making it every St. Patrick's Day a few years ago.
My plan to make Irish Soda bread had to be set aside, too. But I found long ago that one does not have to have perfection to have enjoyment. I knew I had the energy to make either colcannon or the bread and I chose the lovely potato-cabbage dish.
My maternal grandmother was Irish and while I never knew her personally, my mother thought she was an angel. I need to write my oldest sister and ask more about her. Soon.
I also made my new favorite brownie recipe from the above cookbook. Which is Farm Fresh Recipes, info... here.* I LOVE this cookbook! Do you want to know what the brownies look like? Do you?
Yum! I took extra insulin the first day and had to use restraint after that. ;)
Thank you for all of your well wishes. I hope to write a My World this Week by tomorrow or at least Friday.
