Saint Patrick's Day Photos and a Link to a "Controversial" Story

Little Lamb reading Patrick: Patron Saint of Ireland.

Irish Soda Bread made with goat's milk instead of buttermilk.  I worried the baking soda would not have enough acid from the goat's milk to react and create a rise in the bread, but I was pleasantly surprised, that indeed, it did get enough lift.

Oven roasted cabbage brushed with olive oil and seasoned with salt, pepper, and caraway seeds.

Corned beef brushed with a mustard glaze and then broiled.

I posted the linked article on Facebook, too.  It discusses the ongoing controversy between New York's Annual Saint Patrick's Day Parade organizers (The Ancient Order of Hibernians) and the gay lobby.  In summary, the article points out that gays are not unfairly discriminated against and barred from participating in the parade each year.  They are welcome to march, they are just not allowed to identify themselves as an organized gay group or promote gay issues and agendas.  If you read the guidelines the document makes it very clear no group is allowed to identify themselves as anything other than Irish and are not allowed to promote any cause or agenda other than "England Get Out of Ireland".   For the life of me,  I do not get why the gay lobby is making such a brouhaha over this. Anyhoo, it's worth a read.
