It has been a very productive day in the Library. Already put out 13 New Books, took over 60 out of the shelf and the computer and reset some clocks. Busy, busy and the day isn’t over yet.
And since St. Patrick’s is Saturday today’s Irish Tradition is about the Lucky 4 Leaf Clover. I myself have never been lucky enough to find one of this trick little green plants. But it is pretty impossible to find. Here is a website that will tell you 15 Facts about these little stinkers. Maybe now we can find us some luck!!!
March is here, which mean’s I will be posting some new stuff this month!!! This month is going to be Irish Traditions. Why you ask, well March is the month of the Irish!!! Saturday if you are on our Facebook page I got wrapped up in doing my newest bulletin board and didn’t get anything posted. I know bad me right! But yesterday found a video showing Irish River Dancing. If you have never seen any River Dancing, it is mesmerizing. But that was yesterday, and today is Wednesday.
So for today’s Irish Tradition, I thought it would be more of an informative day!! So I looked up the Top 5 Author’s from Ireland according to ranker.com. And here we go!!!
#5: Oscar Wilde: Wrote The Importance of being Earnest
#4: Jonathan Swift: Wrote Gulliver’s Travel’s
#3: Thomas Kinsella: Wrote the Oxford Book for Irish Verses
#2: James Joyce: Wrote Ulysses
And the #1 according to ranker.com is………
Ben Stoker, He wrote Dracula. Not for sure if I can watch the movie now anymore. I will want Dracula with an Irish accent!!!
How many of these have you read??
Not everyone is lucky enough to be able to eat sweets. I myself am diabetic, and recently started a Low Carb diet. Diabetes effects not only myself but a few of my patrons. It is a daily struggle for many of us who are having problems getting their sugar under control. So today, for those of us that are doing diet’s for weight reason’s or for health benefits I have found a Chocolate Silk Pie that all can enjoy.
Yesterday was National Cherry Pie Day. And while most people I know Love Cherry Pie, it isn’t one of my favorites. Now this recipe for Cherry Pie I have found I might like a lot. Hope you all are staying warm, and are having a wonderful month filled with PIES!!!
I am a glutton for punishment. Looking up all these pie recipes being a diabetic is sometime not very nice. Today’s recipe would make my sugar sky high but I think it would be worth it!!! Who doesn’t love Peanut Butter Pie!!!
Pot Pie: A pot pie is a type of meat pie with a top crust, generally made in a pot, consisting of flaky pastry.
We are still in winter……kind of!!! Even thought the next few days it won’t feel like it. And one of my favorite pies for winter time is a Pot Pie. And I am not picky chicken, turkey, beef, I will eat them all. So with so many pot pies out their, I went with a Chicken Pot Pie for today’s Recipe for Pie Month. Maybe I should have waited until I had lunch, now I am starving.
Took my time for this pie. Wanted to find something unique and a pie recipe I had never heard of. Something that wasn’t your Apple or Cherry variety. Here is what I found. A Nectarine, Plum, Raspberry Pie. I don’t know about you all, but I am getting into the mood for some pie!!!!
February is a brand new month. Come in this month and Check Out one of our Inspirational to get entered into the drawing for the month. Congratulations to Charles Aikens our winner for January.
February is National American Pie Month. So I will be posting Pie Recipes all month. To start us off I am posting my Grandfather’s favorite Pie, Sour Cream Raisin Pie, and I can say it isn’t half bad.
