Saint Patricks Day Freebie
So with today being a lucky holiday each one of you, my fellow readers are lucky. I am going to share with you a printable coloring page my Saint Patricks Day Freebie that I have just finished drawing up this week. I would love to see your colored pages so make sure you share them on my Facebook page. To get this lucky color page just click on the image below and the .pdf file will pop up so you can either save or print. The only request from you is that this is for your personal use and not to distribute the .pdf file. If you would like to share the color page please share this post. Thank you. Have a great green day.
Here is a little history lesson for you:
Every year on March 17, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart across the globe observe St. Patrick’s Day. What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.

Also here is a recipe from the page above. This is a family tradition that my mother had when we grew up, she always made this meal for this holiday.
CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE
5 pounds corned brisket of beef
6 peppercorns, or packaged pickling spices
3 carrots, peeled and quartered
3 onions, peeled and quartered
1 medium-sized green cabbage, quartered or cut in wedges Melted butter (about 4 tablespoons)
Place the corned beef in water to cover with the peppercorns or mixed pickling spices (in supermarkets, these often come packaged with the corned beef). Cover the pot or kettle, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 5 hours or until tender, skimming occasionally. During the last hour, add the carrots and onions and cover again. During the last 15 minutes, add the cabbage. Transfer meat and vegetables to a platter and brush the vegetables with the melted butter. Serve with boiled parsley potatoes, cooked separately. (The stock can be saved to add to a pot roast or stew instead of other liquid.)
