Looks like Pixi not only got a cake, but also new "leg warmers" for her birthday; way to go Pixi ! Oh the little guy in the background by the door is Pixi's senior brother, Budd (he is a little dog, not a cat, lol). We will have to feature 'Bud' when his birthday comes around next. Just incase that 'special' pet, that is part of your family, would enjoy some doggie treats or a Birthday Cake (like the one Joanne made for Pixi) you can find a suitable recipe here:
Since it is St. Paddy's Day I thought I would share some "Irish Recipes". Personally my most very favorite is Corned Beef & Cabbage.....ummmmmmmm. I don't get it to often, as not to mention any names, Rob, doesn't care for it. Hummmmmfffff to Rob. LOL.
Corned Beef & Cabbage (I would try this in my slow cooker):
Irish Soda Bread:
Irish Cream Chocolate Tart (this looks soooo forbidding):
I am definitely going to try out the Irish Soda Bread to go along with the Corned Beef & Cabbage, however since I still have some Chocolate Mud Cake left over I will have to wait to experiment with the Irish Cream Chocolate Tart.
I must comment on the outing Aiden James & I had yesterday.....a fantastic time was had by all. Aiden had such a good time, he actually told his father on the phone this morning he was coming back this summer to see his cousins !!!! Aunt Gladys, Cousin Vi & I put out a great lunch of grilled cheese, pickle tray, Mud Cake and Rainbow cupcakes. We even had to unexpected guests in the form of Cousin Troy & Uncle Basil, so we were quite outnumbered by the male gender.
Our gracious Hostess, my Aunt Gladys, Aiden & Brodie's Great Great Aunt & Logan's Grandma, getting her camera ready for that perfect shot of our three boys:
The "boys", Aiden, Brodie & Logan:
Upon our leaving to come back home to North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard, there were promises made for a summer get together......and then there will be another story to tell at that time !
My mind has so busy with St. Paddy's Day, Birthday & Cousins, I almost forgot to see what our Weather Day is going to bring, so here it is:
High of 13, looking pretty good.
I am thinking Aiden & I will be making a trip into town today to check out the library, as there is to be a 10:30 story time, so I suppose I best get dangling here (funny how we pickup saying from our parents like "dangling", lol). Aiden's Mom, Holly & his little brother, Conner, are arriving later today so we have lots to be dangling about before their arrival ........
