happy st. patrick's day!


since it's st. patty's day, we're dressed in green and we'll each have a slice of irish soda bread today.  we're not irish, but i think ryan has the "luck of the irish" in him because he has such a knack for finding four-leaf clovers.  he has found several over the years, and i have kept most of the ones that he found (by pressing them between two pieces of wax paper and letting them dry out.)

i've read that 1 in every 5,000 clovers has four leaves and that your odds of finding one are 1 in 10,000.  the four leaves represent hope, faith, love, and luck.

i love this picture because ryan found this particular four-leaf clover a few summers ago and i have it hanging on our refrigerator.  every time it catches my eye as i walk through the kitchen, i am reminded how lucky we are, and how lucky i am to have ryan as my "lucky charm."

here's a few of our favorite st. patrick's day recipes from over the years . . .
irish soda bread scones
rustic cast-iron skillet irish soda bread
vegan irish soda bread (with dried cherries)
shamrock cut-out sugar cookies

wishing you all the luck of the irish today!
happy st. patty's day!
love, laurie

This is a pretty photo of that perfect four-leaf clover.
