I have a confession. I don't know who St. Patrick is. If I had to guess I would say that he is the patron saint of green beer but I really don't know. Heck I don't know why they say patron saint for that matter. Isn't a patron someone who is buying something? That would mean a patron saint is a saint that is buying something so St. Patrick would be the Saint of buying green beer. It all makes sense now. So when is St. Matthiew's Day?
I just heard on the radio that they closed the schools in Savannah Ga today for the big celebration so he must have been someone really special. Anyone who lives around here knows that Savannah is the place to go to celebrate St. Patrick's day. That's why we stay away. I can't take seeing someone else get sick. Apparently Savannah is the place to get sick on St. Patrick's day. Sounds like fun doesn't it.
I also don't know why people pinch you if you don't wear green. But not wanting to get pinched, I did bring a green St. Patrick's day badge to wear. The real reason that I wore it today was to drive the guys that I work crazy. It is macho city where I work and these guys worry too much about being masculine. If you dare wear pink in to work, I think they take you out back and beat you. Just another guess but I would bet on that one.
Now as for the Biscuit recipe. Let me give it to you straight. Basically they are little omelets in regular biscuits. I simply made omelets with fried ham chunks, mushrooms and cheese. I made them about 3 inches wide and 12 inches long and then cut them into 3 inch by 3 inch squares and put them on lightly buttered biscuits. Man I could go for one of those right about now. If you make them today, make sure and add green food coloring.
Three hours until lunch time. I am never going to make it. Is anyone else hungry?
Have a great St. Patrick's Day,
