After St. Patrick's Day

'Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature:
old things are passed
away; behold, all things
are become new.'
-2 Corinthians 5:17

Maybe some of you have also watched 'The Rising of The Moon' by John Ford. Quite an interesting compilation of three very different stories. Part 2 - "One Minute Stop" was quite funny, the third part was the most serious though. All worth watching if you haven't seen it yet. Anyway,  I enjoyed listening to the Irish accent too.

A new Duckie joined our Duck Dynasty. Although he is wearing a red jacket, he has very much to do with St. Patrick's Day. Still not known whether he can swim. :)

As far as I know, cherry cheese cobbler is not a traditional Irish treat but we enjoyed it anyway :)

Pancakes & Duck Dynasty

"The Lord thy God, he is
God, the faithful God,
which keepeth covenant
and mercy with them that 
love him"
-Deuteronomy 7:9
Last Saturday some guys (including women of course!) celebrated International Women's Day and some International Pancakes Day. Maybe some, both but I guess, the ones who knew about the first one, didn't know about the latter one, and the opposite. It was all on 8th March of course. :)
Our pancakes are so good!

Many people have heard about The Duck Dynasty - well, I do not know much about them - maybe because we have our own Duck Dynasty and all the guys are our favourites! Even though only two of them can swim. :)

Cookies & Irish Festival

'The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him,
to all that call upon him in truth'
-Psalm 145:18

Good cookies are a good snack - when you are hungry and as a dessert too. So when you plan some outing or a picnic, prepare yourself and make some cookies a day before. 

Molasses cookies

I've tried a new molasses cookies recipe - yes, they are tasty! I only added a bit different spices mix. Besides, I tried an option of oat meal cookies - with less oat meal. With good/tasty results. Quite funny that the recipe for oat meal cookies is not known in every part of the world - well, at least not very popular. Maybe because one of the ingredients is brown sugar, not used or hardly ever used in kitchens of many coutries. Anyway, the recipe is worth spreading indeed.

There was a really good weather on the Irish Festival day.  The cookies were good and useful but it was the companionship that made the day!

Blaggards were the best band of the festival day
