But of course I'm not Irish. Like that matters today. I am by birth 100% hapa but I'm not going to let that get in the way of making Irish stew and champ and washing it down with Guinness. Uh huh. And I've got The Long Black Veil by The Chieftains on the iPod and I'm sporting a sprig of green. I even broke out the cast iron skillet and baked Irish soda bread.

My genuinely Irish friend tells me that the raisins and caraway seeds in my soda bread aren't strictly traditional. But then neither am I.

One, two, three, four, five,
Hunt the hair and turn her
Down the rocky road
And all the way to Dublin,
Whack-fol-lol-de-ra!

Silante!

About Me
Two working adults and a kid in school. Someone has to cook and that someone is usually me. *sigh*
My favorite things to cook
Whatever makes my family smile while they're eating.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I cook, they clean up after me. It's the kind of tradition I can fully embrace.
My cooking triumphs
No one has asked me to stop yet.
My cooking tragedies
When I was 13, I made pecan rolls for my family. The recipe called for 8 refrigerator biscuits but the package held 10. My mom asked me what I did with the other 2. Judging from the look on her face, "I threw them away" wasn't the right answer.
