A Little Something Green...

Top O' the mornin' to ya...
Scruffy O'Bear here, I'll be bringing you this special St. Patty's Day post. My brother Buttons O'Bear is suffering a wee case of bearangitus. Also, because he
was not allowed in my grandma's kitchen, he needed my help to report on the preparations.
Grandma cooked us a lovely Irish dinner last evening. She was carving the corned beef when I arrived.
Yum, cabbage all be it not boiled, but stir-fried with a little onion, soy sauce and close your ears Sullivan, bacon. We also had boiled new potatoes, roasted carrots, Irish soda bread & corn muffins.
For desert we had what turned out to be a pie smorgasbord.  Grandma's good friend surprised her by bringing a cherry pie and
a banana Creme Pie. Oh my! My grandma had made a special green pie in honor of the day.
She said we could share the recipe with you.
Lime Parfait Pie
6 oz. Lime Jell-O
2 c. boiling water
1 tsp. Lime Zest
1/3 c. Lime Juice
1 qt. Vanilla Ice Cream - softened
10" pie shell or graham cracker crust
whipped cream or topping

Dissolve Jell-O & boiling water. Stir in lime zest and juice; add ice cream; stir until melted. Chill
until mixture mounds; pour into pie shell or crust. Refrigerate until set. Serve with whipped
cream or topping. 

Hoping you all have a Happy St. Patty's Day. Please remembear to celebrate safely. Also say a special prayer for the people of Japan.

Thanks Buttons for being a little under the weather, I rather enjoyed doing this post, glad I was here to help out.

Signing out,
Scruffy O'Bear for Buttons O'Bear

Happy St. Patrick's Day Buttons! We're going to ask papa to make the lime pie, it sounds bearishly good!

Thanks Scruffy _ I'm going to make that pie for Sunday lunch. Sure and I'm missing the Shamrock Isle just now, living here in the wilds of Wales, but I have a real Mammy and Daddy now, so I wouldn't be going back to live there now. But (are you listening Mammy?) a weekend break in Dublin and a few drafts of Guiness would be so welcome at this time of year .... Top of the morning to you, Scruffy.
Your new pal
Brendan O'Button
