Our St. Patrick's Day went a little haywire! First of all, Gooser came down with some kind of ailment the night before--he started complaining of a headache (which always freaks me out in little kids) and then in the middle of the night he was crying that he had a sore throat and feverish. So he obviously didn't go to school, but he seemed pretty okay this morning.
Here's a pic of Gooser and Pickle in their green:
I had to drag poor sick Gooser along on a few errands--the most important one being the grocery store for the fixings for the Irish meal. So I get to the store and Gooser started feeling nauseous so I tried to grab the stuff as fast as I could so we could get out of there.
I was slowed because i wasn't seeing corned beef in any of the obvious places. Usually around this time of year the corned beef is everywhere! So I finally asked someone and she told me they had no corned beef. Huh? She rambled on about the warehouse and a shortage, then she pulled some weird premade corned beef dinner thing and said it was the last one left.
With Gooser looking like he was going to blow any second, I grabbed the makeshift beef and got out of there.
But it wasn't bad! And it sure was a lot easier to made than my usual extravavganza--so that was a good thing!
We also made the glowing green cocktails from Noble Pig.
They were good! I also think these one be fun to serve at Halloween--you could pour them from a glass container with a skull or something on it that said "poison."
I also made this totally decadent Bailey's Irish Cream cake, also from Noble Pig! I just left the nuts out because of some allergies.
OMG this was crazy delicious! My no-carb thing flew out the window--I HAD to have a piece!
Here's the green group: Pickle's new favorite thing to do is remove her diaper. I found her today at the dining room table--commando, and drawing brown marker all over Patrick's poster of the endocrine system that's due in science class tomorrow. Noooooooooo! Luckily, Patrick was a good sport about it and is redoing it as we speak. Good thing she's so cute!
