i found the this poster on Pinterest.

when i read it, a question came to mind.

what (the H- E- double hockey sticks) happened between 1917 and 2014?

it appears that our country has been trying to get it's nutritional act together

for 97 years.  i remember the pyramids...first they were right side up,

then they turned them upside down.


...notice #3

hmmmm...

could they have considered the "gluten" issue back then?

we have all been told to watch our meat consumption...but...

...why is everyone still pushing whole wheat?

just when i have my legumes together, are they going to

tell me "less legumes"?

(i am not changing that previous sentence for anything!)

i am barefoot and blessed on this beautiful Saturday!

have you visited Leslie

i met her in blogland this past year!

she's a Pacific Northwest girl too!  Leslie has been such an

inspiration to me!  we road the Seahawk victory ride together! 

(Go Hawks, Les!)

every woman loves a LBD ...and a give a way!

thank you, Leslie and Keri!

i know by telling you that my odds will be a little bit less,

but i never miss a chance to share some PacNWest love!

it's the third day of Springshine in Seattle!

withLove!

GIVERNY floral print...:: ICI ::

...and KATE, in my range!
(don't kill me when you see the prices!)




it could be rationalized as much less than a trip to Giverny.

...well, mayyyybe,

we're  talkin' Oscar couture here...

...and day dreaming, of course!


oh my!


the sun is shining on the first full day of SPRING in the Pacific Northwest!

i think that i have a fever...

HAPPY SPRING!

:: LAST NIGHT'S SWEET DESSERT AND A MOVIE...TODAY, IRELAND INSPIRES!

Nigella's recipe
:: ici ::

last night we had boiled dinner at Chrislyn and Jason's house.

Chrislyn made Nigella's Guinness chocolate cake.

my father had the videos of our trip to Ireland, eighteen years ago, 


converted to digital.  we revisited the house near Recess...now a stable, where my 


great grandfather Sullivan was born.  our cousin took us fly fishing on


Lough Corrib, after we caught Mayflies on Rabbit Island for bait.

we visited "the west", Clifden, Cong... (where The Quiet Man was filmed)...near


 Corr Na Monamy great grandmother's birthplace. we danced and sang until closing time

in Castlebar. (in "the west", the Irish sing their National Anthem at closing time.) 

we traveled to the Dingle Peninsula and Limerick.

we sang "alive...alive O", next to sweet  Molly Malone on Grafton street in Dublin.

when the movie ended,  Holland stood up and said, 

"this party's over!"




...today, THE party begins and IRELAND INSPIRES!




Sláinte!

 (slahn-chə

is a word literally translating as "health" 
and is commonly used as a drinking toast in Ireland.

Happy St Patrick's Day!

withLove.
