St Patrick's Day



It has been a tradition in the O' Roberts family to make blarney stones. They are made of angel food cake with a cream cheese frosting, sprinkled with almonds on top. Yummy! Since Adrian doesn't allow St Patrick's day to be celebrated in our home, I made the cake for my co-workers. When we have children, we will eat a St Patrick's Day breakfast consisting of the famous Lucky charms, green bagels, green cream cheese, and green milk. It has been a favorite pastime of mine to have a fun St Patrick's Day breakfast so he will need to deal. If you don't know what a blarney stone is...google it since I don't have time (Adrian is forcing me to hurry up). Anyway, I love St Patrick's day. It is especially important to me because my dad went to Ireland on his mission.

I remember your Mom making us Blarney stones when we were at Ricks. It must have been parents week or something, and she was there. It was very sweet and a lot of fun. I didn't really grow up celebrating St. Patrick's Day because, suprise suprise, my Mom is British! She refuses to even wear green! It is too funny. I am guessing Adriann is the same way.

Ian's parents are going on vacation to Ireland here in about a month. I've heard it's beautiful there.
