Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots, with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight
They know that Santa’s on his way
He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother’s child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly
And so I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you.
Nat King Cole….and I, wish y’all a Merry Christmas!!

St. Patrick’s Day
Normally you would think we would be having Corned beef and Cabbage for St. Patrick’s day but the Irish didn’t eat Corned beef and Cabbage…they more likely ate an Irish Stew and this one is traditional in our Irish family. Although the Irish probably wouldn’t have carrots in their stew, my wife liked carrots so you know why there is carrots in ours. They might also have a menu similar to below and without a doubt a few pints of Guinness and that’s alright with me!
It’s Easter Sunday. A day full of tradition for families as adult children return home and kids search for eggs and enjoy treats from the Easter Bunny. Mothers and daughters got to parade in their new outfits and dad got to hide the eggs. Here is a great menu for you to enjoy.

- Roast Leg of Lamb
- Garlic Roasted Chicken
- Asparagus in Dill Butter
- Scalloped Potatoes
- Lemon Cheese Cake
