And who can for get Rory..the family pet.
Three of the Grands..and..
Shamrock cookies and some sort of stone cake with green frosting?? No idea..but it was delicious.
I GOT this one. Corned beef..and cabbage..of course!
More Irish bread..not a clue what it is. Am I fired? :)
I stopped my grandson and checked his plate out. Since he is a film maker..I mean a real one, he was very understanding and cooperative. Bless his hungry little heart.
An Irish potato dish that looks like scalloped potatoes but something is different...darned if I know what. NOT an expert on this ..and Maryalice, the cook was off talking to guests and family.
This is a snap of Irish Soda bread. Loved the dish..not fond of the bread.
Irish music all evening..and a bit of cutting up and dancing..but..most we got into old, old videos which had everyone screaming at laughter at the 70's and 80's hairdo's. Whataday! :) I did absolutely terrible at taking pictures and planning and..I was tired. (excuses.. :)

  5. Beautiful family Mona and it looks like you all eat and celebrate the way we do! Most of the family gatherings have been at my little house over the years and I love to cook.We'll probably have one on Easter.
