Happy St. Patrick's Day

Love these cupcakes!  Found them on a blog called, Happier Than a Pig in Mud.  This link will take you to the actual recipe.  If you want to see her full blog, just erase the back half off her address up to the dot com and go explore.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  May the winds...'ya know...blow your skirt up or something like that...WHAT???Hahahaa....and may the Blarney, somethingsomething, of the morning thingy...for 'ya!  Ok!  Sounds good to Me!
Hubby decided to repeat the cheesy, green onion scones in honor of the Day.  Always Wonderful!
If you're like me, you're rather tired by the time you reach March and would just wish Holiday Marketing would go take a proverbial, HIKE! 
I understand who St. Patrick was and appreciate Ireland's devotion...I think...I was raised Catholic so I had a pretty through diet of saints and their "holidays", but what I take issue with is the selling of the holiday.  My main holiday is Christmas.  It's the one that says Jesus.  We celebrate his birth.  We try to remember that life is super short and that maybe Jesus' message really does mean something...Love...nothing more, nothing less.  How can you sell can't but retailers think they can so I just try to navigate through the seasonal mess.
They say St. Patrick's Day  is also about the food SO...Here's to the devil running down the road...the birds nesting in unison and the clover never leaving stains on the knee of your jeans.
Now...Go eat hardy me maties and just love and care about someone today...I think St. Patrick would approve.
