Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
James Gagon and Mary Highland, my fifth great-grandparents, were from Kilbeggan Westmeath Ireland. Their grand son William Highland Gagon was born in 1887, and migrated to the United States during the Ireland potato famine. Here’s to my ancestry and a cheer for the Irish!
“These things I warmly wish to you-
Someone to love
Some work to do
A bit o’ sun
A bit o’ cheer
And a guardian angel always near.”
A Craft from Heidi
A Craft from Eden
Eden loves oranges! Because they fit into the color scheme they were added to the menu. She has never been a meat lover, so the corned beef wasn’t expected to be eaten, and it wasn’t.
A Craft from Ayzia
Ayzia’s everyday color palette just so happens be a good-luck-rainbow of colors.
Now that Corned Beef has been tasted, I’m able to report that it’s not favorable. It’s not so much the taste, but the texture that turns me off from it. However, Ayzia did eat hers and Jake seemed to like it.
Dessert was supposed to be called Grasshopper Baked Alaska. But many alterations were made. The brownie mixture was made gluten free. The mint liqueur in the ice cream was substitute with pure mint extract. The ice cream was substituted with frozen yogurt and a meringue was supposed to be on top.
