St Patrick's Day~
Funny ,you may think... for a French canadian girl to participate:)
Truth is..my grandfather was of Irish descent and married a French girl~Their last names prove it..
A love story I am told~
So here is my tribute to St-Paddy's Day.. my being part Irish:) The green eyes..
A festive table thanks to friends:) last year..Warmed my Irish/French heart~
Irish Green Topiaries:) So pretty and fresh after our looong winter!
...Little add-on..A tag of course~
Apart from the 4 leaf clover Killarney Spoon and another w/ Killarney at it's heart in my collage from family..
I do treasure this pin I add on to my clothing every St-Paddy's Day..
See the small clover w/ rhinestone pin?
Dinner was thanks to one of my DD's who made a Stout Stew..
and brought leftovers..I simply added the shamrock shaped puff pastry tops~
She even brought Cornbread muffins that were out of this world~
I made a Ricardo dessert..
Chocolate Mint Tarts..
The tuiles are glucose syrup tuiles w/ pistachios..(for the green effect:) )
and sugared mint~
The interior of the chocolate tarts are Crème De Menthe and chocolate ganache..
Thank you Caro..you made this dinner easy for me..
Have I told you J really enjoys beers? Like wine?
He even likes the glasses that go with..
French.. French Canadian.. Japanese..Irish..Scottish..:)American..
Italian.. Mexican..all of them!
For this festive day~
Have a wonderful celebration everyone..
