Happy St Paddy’s Day everyone. I must admit mine, this year, hasn’t been the most exciting which is shameful considering I am Irish. Normally it’s tradition to head out to a pub on the Saturday then Parade on the Sunday but this year the most I’ve done in regards to celebrating is making an Irish coffee ahh! Oh and watching the Rugby – I know Ireland weren’t playing but watching sport counts a little wouldn’t you say?
The weekend just gone was a lovely weekend with lots of food, fun and lack of sun! Last Friday night I caught up with my girl mates and we had a great night consisting of lots of food and Magic Mike! I had actually seen Magic Mike only a few weeks ago but nothing beats watching it with 6 other girls. We all screamed and laughed so much at the dance routines especially at Matthew McConaughey in his tight shorts and crop top! The seven of us sat around a round table laid out with bowls filled with bacon bits, cheese, olives and sun-blushed tomatoes and were then served pesto pasta. It’s something I never have too often but it really is just such a delicious dish especially with all the added bits. Not only that but we had it with pizza bread, wine and some strawberry cheesecake with ice cream for dessert. Stuffed after that? Pretty much but we still managed to fit in some popcorn too. I love these nights, we hadn’t done it in ages and to be honest it was probably more fun than going out plus I didn’t have a hangover on Saturday. Double bonus!
