St. Pat's Dinner and Dessert

Hello Everyone,
How's your week going?  I just returned from visiting my mother.  She turned 91 years old on March 14th.  My sister and our husbands took our mom out to a nice dinner and after we came home from  the restaurant  we celebrated her birthday with these cupcakes for dessert.
  I put a candle in one of cupcakes and then  she blew out the candle out and made a wish. 
We all had a great time laughing and celebrating the life of such a remarkable lady.
~My Mother~

Last Saturday was Sweetheart's birthday.  We invited our children over for Corned Beef and Cabbage to help celebrate Sweetheart's 70th birthday.  Of course he did all the cooking.
He is a marvelous chef.

Just is time for St. Patrick's Day we love to take on some Irish classics. 
 The bedrock of a great St. Paddy's menu is corned beef and cabbage with boiled red potatoes.

The cabbage is boiled separately in clean salted water just before serving the corned beef. 

Fresh bread and butter is always a wonderful addition to any meal.

I took a suggestion from Designs by Gollum for exhausted cooks and made the cupcakes from a Devil's Food Chocolate Cake Mix and prepared Vanilla Frosting. A piece of Belgian Chocolate on the top of the cupcakes finished the dessert.  Cupcake papers are from Tuesday Morning.

I hope partaking of this special menu on March 17 will bring you the luck of the Irish, enough to ward off any curses that may befall you...and that's no blarney.
