Favorite Things: Setting the Table

I love having people over for a shared meal. The meals where you pull out the fancy serving dishes, and make sure the silverware matches, and just sit around talking and eating and talking and eating.

I am not a big fan of corned beef and cabbage, sorry Irish fore folk. So instead of having people over for a St. Patrick's dinner, I had a brunch, or second breakfast, if you will.

Potatoes where there. So were soda bread and bacon. From across the sea, imported Irish cheese and butter came. And a special appearance was made by shortbread filled with pistachios, white chocolate and dried apricots, green, white and orange, the Irish flag, my friends. And to not let things get too serious,  Yoda came too.
