St. Patrick's Day 2012

I am rarely organized enough to plan for things, so basically everything is spur of the moment. This year K was watching TV the night before St. Patrick's Day and saw that there was going to be a St. Patrick's Day parade. Surprisingly we had enough bread to make a few sandwiches, so the next day we loaded up the cooler and headed to the parade. It was in Eureka Springs, which is an interesting little town. It's actually where my grandparents spent their honeymoon, but that was about 60 years ago. A lot has changed since then. Now it has a lot of bars and restaurants and I think is geared more toward middle aged people. I guess I'm almost middle aged though, although I don't really think of it that way. Anyway, the parade was fun. The people on the floats threw beads. Kind of strange for St. Patrick's Day but maybe they had some left over from Mardi Gras. We thought it was fun to get as many beads as we could and put them all on B4.

After the parade we headed home and made a St. Patrick's Day feast. Yes, this is considered a feast around here since I'm not much of a cook. Of course, just like everything else, it was a last minute feast. We stopped by WM on the way home and got pizza crust, Thousand Island Dressing, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and corned beef. When we got home we threw it all together and made a corned beef pizza. It was really good. And easy.

We also made spinach dip because spinach is green.

For dessert we had mint chocolate chip ice cream because it is green too. Oh yeah, and as a side dish we had potato salad. You know, because Irish people eat potatoes.

Very clever, I know.
