Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Here’s a funny story… When I was a kid growing up in Chicagoland, I felt like I was the only person I knew who wasn’t Irish. St. Patrick’s Day celebrations are a big deal in this area, and I always felt a little left out. Many years later, after my grandmother passed away, we discovered that we are not only Irish, but very Irish. Clearly that meant I had to make up for last time, so I’ve been overdoing St. Paddy’s Day ever since. (I will say that the whole leprechauns visit seems to me a new thing for my kids’ generation. They certainly never visited our house when I was a child.)
1. Wear green.
2. Whip up an authentic Irish meal.
I love me some vegetarian shephard’s pie. (Any sort of plant-based ground beef works great!)
This is technically something you want to do the night before, but there is no reason they can’t visit today instead!
This year, we made shamrocks, leprechaun faces, and green necklaces. It doesn’t have to be fancy. I am not a Pinterest level crafter, but my kids don’t care.
5. Make your food and drink green.
6. Look for 4 leaf clovers in your yard.
We have more of them (and every holiday themed book) than I should probably admit.
We blend Greek yogurt, spinach leaves, avocado, mint leaves, ice, and honey in a blender. It’s more of a Shamrock Smoothie. But it’s delicious!
Checkers is celebrating National Napping Day. (Chewing that windowsill was exhausting!) I hope you can fit in a snooze today. Until next time, Good day, and good dog!

1. Take turns.
5. Mix it up.
7. Wash clothes in cold water.
I choose the warm and hot water options on my a Samsung AddWash™ Front-Load Washer. when necessary, but the majority of the time I choose cold. (It even has an “Eco Cold” water setting!) Most of the energy used by washing machines is to heat water, so when you opt for cold, you’re simply using less. (Cold water helps colors stay bold and bright too!)
Earlier this week, I posted about the decline in euthanasia in pet shelters, but I want to ask today about the broader question of euthanasia. I have a relative who is absolutely against it under any circumstances, while I tend to think it can be a humane solution when a dog is suffering. My son, … Continue reading Saturday Survey: Euthanasia
Yes, this is a summer inspired drink. Yes, summer is four months away. But I firmly believe that’s even more reason it enjoy it now. This is such a delicious after dinner treat, and, when the weather finally does warm up, incredibly refreshing. It combines some of my favorite flavors too (lemon + prosecco).
3 cups prosecco, chilled
1/2 cup mango sorbet
handful of blueberries
Pour the prosecco equally into two glasses. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze into each glass. (A strainer helps to catch the seeds.) Scoop 1/4 cup of mango sorbet into each glass. Top with blueberries. Serve immediately.
Maybe I’ll put on a tank, cut off shorts, and flip flops next time I make these, then close my eyes and pretend I’m not surrounded by two feet of snow… Enjoy!
