St Patrick’s Day is celebrated annually on March 17. The day honors the patron saint of Ireland with celebrations around the world. There is no exception here in North Florida where we have celebrated St Patrick’s Day for as long as I can remember. Most recently at the block party in Five Points which ended this year with the closing of O’Brothers Irish Pub
The block party was great fun and it is disheartening that I now have no place in which to wear my green wig. But alas…
All is still well… I may have no where to go on St Patrick’s Day but I still have baking skills.
Since I make preparations to have a dessert of the month for my LB (pictured above in the green top hat) March typically calls for the Bailey’s Irish Cream Cake. LB loves his evening dessert… whatever it may be it must have Reddi Whip and a maraschino cherry on top.
This cake is right out of the oven before glazing. Boy Oh Boy is it tasty! (hence the smile)
Every March 17th I’m styling a green wig, an “Irish for a Day” tee, green star sunglasses, countless beads and other paraphernalia , and my everyday jeans and shoes. Surely most of you have collected these things in your travels.
Happy St Patrick’s Day!
Here’s a tasty Irish treat:
