it tickles the cockles in me heart. . .

I was once at a church where an Irish lady got up and said tearfully, "It tickles the cockles in me 'eart to have me family here." We've been saying "it tickles the cockles in me heart" ever since.

In honor of St. Patty's day, this is our menu for that day:

From Simply Recipes, Corned Beef and Cabbage (or New England Boiled Dinner as the site says) which may or may not have Irish roots.

Irish Soda Bread from Food Network. Simply Recipes also has a good recipe, except I think we will leave any currants out of ours.

Strawberry and Apple Crumble from Food Network or I may just go with something more kid-like, like a shamrock shaped somethin'-or-other.
