Happy St. Pat's!

It's 5:30 in the morning, and my husband, David, and I are headed out the door. Why? Every year for St. Patrick's Day, his sister hosts a corned beef and cabbage breakfast on her front lawn. Neighbors stop in. Cops drive by and honk and wave. Total strangers stare at us in amazement. Are we insane? Probably. But rain or shine or snow (and there have been plenty of snowy days), we're there starting the day with a unique tradition.

The soda bread is waiting. Happy St. Pat's!
