For about ten days before St. Patrick’s, I thought it was on Wednesday. Even though I had it on both my home and work calendar, and even though I knew that Tuesday was the 17th…for some reason I thought it was Wednesday. Until boyfriend informed me Tuesday morning just before leaving for work that it was St. Patty’s. I was so confused. Sometimes I get discombobulated like that.
I don’t go too crazy for St. Patrick’s, but I like to think that I’m part Irish, so I celebrate just a little. I was planning to wear a green sweater and make a green dinner. I was already dressed for work, so the sweater was a no go, and I had way too many leftovers to cook dinner Tuesday night. So I went with my original plan and observed St. Patrick’s on Wednesday.
My green meal consisted of mini crustless tofu quiches with spinach instead of green peppers, raw chard salad with grapefruit, and parsley mashed potatoes. So the quiches were more yellow and brown, and the chard was a deep reddish purple color, and the plate gave off a weird glow. Oh well! It tasted great.
The potatoes were upset that they were in the background, so here’s their close-up.
