A Taste O' Ireland!




...as I was collecting the items for our traditional St. Patrick's Day meal, I stumbled across this wonderful specimen...

It is what mama always called an Irish Potato but this one is special...it is in the shape of a heart! Here I have pictured it in a bed of clover, but tomorrow this 'heart' will go into the boil pot with a corned beef brisket, some carrots and cabbage to celebrate the love of family and the country that gave us part of our rich heritage.

Frank and I both celebrate our Irish Heritage through the Burke and O'Neill families.

Erin go bragh!
