St. Paddy's Day Blog Crawl at Cuisine Kathleen!

It's that time of year to toast and cheer
Cabbage and beef and lots of beer!

Time once more to visit Kathleen
at her blog hop where the scene is definitely green!

Where Alma, Pat and Denise par-tay
I sure hope this linky will never go away

For me this year I must hang loose
For without a lap top I am a cooked goose!

But a toast can be made, for that I am sure
I hope I have not been too much of a bore!

Started "spring cleaning", beginning with me
Perhaps this year I will get it all done, finally!

Eat, drink, and be merry!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all!  Every one is a wee bit Irish that day, so heed the call!!  Joining Cuisine Kathleen for the crawl!

You all know this place, I am sure!  I just made my first trip there last Friday.  It was love at first visit!

I used a stroller as we did not see shopping carts at first.

A very delicious cup of coffee.  Love their dining area.

Fish and chips for the First Friday of Lent.  It was very good.  Then we walked and walked and walked.  But I scored some nice things at really good prices.

Flatware in a nice spring green, goes well with decor and dishes that I have, service for four, $5.99, I bougt two sets for service of 8.  The aluminum pot was just 99 cents.  Faux grass, rose napkin holder and pretty spring time napkins.

I love using straws for cold beverages, and at 79 cents a pack of 100, why not?  A pretty card board lighted star, I will hang this in my dining room window for Memorial Day through Labor day and Patriots's Day.  A roll of white drawing paper. so many uses, and a cute dust pan, which was $1.99.

Of course it was hard to skip the Marketplace!  Salmon spread and crab spread, horseradish sauce which I imagine will be delicious on salmon or roast beef.  Ost prast semisoft part-skim cheese, coffee, vanilla sauce, and tunnbrod, a tasty flat bread or lavosh type bread.  I had a piece this morning with my egg whites.  

Of course, the piece de resistance at Ikea, the crepes and lingonberries!
