A Bit of Irish Wisdom!

 I thought I would grace you with a bit of Irish wisdom to carry you through your weekend! I always enjoyed the humor and good sense behind some of the old Irish inspirations, and I found a few that are classic. I also thought some may be getting a jump start on the Irish celebrations and would need a good "True" Irish Soda bread recipe. This is not the bread you buy in the store!! So enjoy a bit of health, happiness and bread with butter over the weekend!!

A Handful of Skill is better than a bagful Of Gold!

Don't be breaking your shin on a stool that's not in your way!

You'll never plough a field by turning it over in your mind!

Three best to have in plenty -sunshine,
                                                      and generosity.

A friend's eye is a good mirror.

God is good, but never dance in a small boat!

And last but not least: Always remember to forget the troubles that passed away,
but never forget to remember the blessings that come each day!! This recipe is the way I remember my Grand Aunt Sarah made her bread, occasionally she would add dried currants, but I loved this simple bread, warm with Kerry Gold butter!!! Enjoy!!


  1. Look amazing, and love the quotes.
    Happy Sunday.
