Kevin created this using a Star Wars book and the legos that we already have.

Does this picture remind anyone of his Uncle Joe, or is it just me?

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

March 18, 2013

Today is officially St. Patrick’s Day in the Church. It was moved this year because it fell on Passion Sunday. We have quite a thunderstorm brewing out there, as we are under severe thunderstorm watch just about all day. We are decorated and MaryEllen is baking a cake. The Irish Soda bread will be started soon. Hopefully someone will take pictures to be posted later.

Until then, I wanted to record my Aunt Gert’s Irish Soda bread recipe. Growing up, my Mother made it every year for St. Patrick’s Day. I presume it was my Grandmother’s recipe, but will only be able to confirm that when we meet again, as Aunt Gert has passed on and my Mom doesn’t remember things so well.

IRISH SODA BREAD
Preheat over 375 degrees

-3 Cups Flour
-3 Tbsps. Sugar
-1/2 tsp. Salt
-1/2 tsp. Baking soda
-3 tsps. Baking soda
-1 Cup RAisins
-1 1/3 Cup Buttermilk

Mix dry ingredients together.
Add Buttermilk, mix well.
Dough will be sticky.
Knead 10 times.
Make a round loaf.
With sharp knife, make a cross on top of loaf (to let the devil out).
Bake 35 minutes.
Bread will have a hollow sound.
This amount of dough makes 6 texas muffins.

(Disclaimer, we are neither Irish or Texans. 🙂

We hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!
