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!
