Jilda did her magic in the kitchen today. I think it's the Irish in her genes. She whipped up cornedbeef, colcannon (cabbage and Irish potatoes with bits of crispy bacon), carrots, and Irish Soda Bread. She also made brownies laced with Bailey's Irish Creme and Frangelico. 
There are people who would have donated a kidney to have been at our table this evening, but the lucky ones were our dear friends Kaye and Jamie. 
At one point the conversation lagged and all you could hear was primal grunts. Had someone tried to take our food away, it could have turned nasty.
We talked until our tongues were tired (to borrow a phrase from Dan Fogelberg), and afterwards we worked on a song idea that Jamie had been working on.  
I love the synergy of working with creative people. Each line of a lyric opens a Universe of possibilities for the next line.
I'm not sure we would have had more fun even if we had Leprechauns with shamrocks in their lapels had joined us.


  1. I love working with creative people, too. It is amazing what comes out when you put energized minds together. Your meal sounds delicious. Jilda outdid herself for sure. St. Paddy's Day blessings to you- xo Diana

  2. Good for you and Jilda! Sounds like a great St. Patty's Day.

  3. Awwww Jilda is totally amazing!! Four leaf clovers all round!! Glad you had a great St Patrick's Day! Take care

  4. Sounds like a great meal. I think it would be such fun to write songs with people.
