Irish Birthday Party

Yesterday we celebrated Chuck's birthday which is a day after Saint Patrick's Day. It was a smallish affair with only a few friends over to the house to celebrate. I slaved in the kitchen making "authentic" Irish dishes such as Irish Lamb Stew, Potato Soup, and Kerry Apple Cake. I was pretty impressed with myself. Lindsey made Irish Soda Bread, sausage rolls (different from our sausage rolls, and a chocolate cake). She also prepared our Irish playlist for the party. She rocks!

We all had a great time, but I was exhausted at the end of the day. Damn time change always screws things up.
