kiss me i’m irish… and a beer stew

Although I had been looking forward to a week off with the boys for March break for quite some time now, this week has been nothing like what I had planned. Well, actually, I had nothing planned, and that is why I ended up being kind of miserable all week long! Zero motivation to do anything, the three of us wanting to stay in our pj’s all day, to watch movies, take naps and play board games. It was fun for a few days, but now that the week is almost over, I’m pretty bummed that we didn’t planned a getaway with the boys (like literally everyone else on my Instagram and Facebook did).

The daylight saving time putted me in a bad mood right off the bat on Sunday when I lost a precious hour of weekend nap time in the afternoon (can’t believe I am actually complaining about the daylight saving time now, but it was that kind of week!). I know there are some global benefits to it, but for me, it kind of ruined my week! I also know there are much bigger issues in the world, like Stormy Daniels ex boy-toy, but when all of our society’s serious problems will be taken care of, can we look at the daylight saving time thing again? Please!!!

There’s actually one good thing this week, and it’s the fact that we love to celebrate St-Patty’s Day at our house. So far this week we’ve made a few crafts, drank green milk and decorated the house. I also want to bring the boys to a St-Patty’s Day parade this weekend, as I’m pretty sure they would love it! So with all the snow and all my crappy moods, I decided that we were in need of some comfort food. And what’s more comfy than an Irish stew this time of year? It was sooo good that I have to respond to that last question that nothing is (more comfy!). It even putted me in a good mood for a minute or two; while putting my husband in not such a great mood during that same minute or two, as he realized that I had poured almost all of his last Beau’s Strong Patrick beer in my stew. Oh well, I wanted to make a delicious stew, and I knew this beer was one for it just by its awesome sticker and name! We all loved it, and I’m so glad I had some leftovers to freeze for the next snow storm! So here’s an awesome recipe just in time for March 17th.


You should all make this comfort stew as it will make you forget about your daylight saving blues! Cheers everyone, have fun this weekend. After all, we’re all Irish on St-Patty’s Day, right? Sláinte!
