Happy St. Patrick's Day — MidWeek Blues Greens — Things not on my shopping list

[large picture] [extra large]

None of the stuff on these shelves was on my list. Some looked good, others I had never even heard of. But if one came looking for Irish things to help celebrate St. Patrick's Day there wouldn't be any problem finding them.

An odd thing though, there is only one of most of these items on the display. Do you suppose ... ?

At any rate, I didn't buy any thing like these pictured here.

This is my shopping list. No, I did not have any green shamrock sugar cookies on my list.

Did I buy one then? No, I did not buy any green shamrock sugar cookies.

This Kroger in-the-store-baked cookie was free, a gift for the customers.

What WAS on my list? Only four items, cooking sherry, a cantaloupe or some canned chunk pineapple, a box of plastic wrap, and some half and half for coffee. We were to entertain at our home for Gourmet Dining, an activity planned by the ladies' organization.

This is the Killarney Castle (Ireland) where I kissed the Blarney Stone on two different holiday vacations. For some more words about me kissing the Blarney Stone, please click here. The last one has an explanation in case you haven't read it before or want to review.

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo picture on the right. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did.
Or do less. All she requires is a BLUE PICTURE, you don't have to write.

Cuisine Kathleen is having a sharing of the green party. She likes to post about eating, food, dishes, and stuff but has invited all kinds of greenery posts to link today. I think she would like to eat with our Jim Bunch Eats too.

i thought that the lassie is irish, so you had better do something special for her!

Green is most appropriate today for a blues post!
Rebecca, that's funny.

I'll let someone else judge whether the blarney stone works for blogging.
It's Our Green Day, even though I'm not Irish. Happy St. Patrick's Day, GEG, Jim!

I'm not one for green beer or lime or what not, but I do love the taste of mint and a reason to have a party. Yummy green. That's so special that you've been to Ireland and kissed the Barney Stone!

ahh, how fun that you've been to Ireland. It must be a beautiful place.
Happiest St. Patrick's Day.
Now that's some good marketing having all that green together like that :0)

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you Jim!

I'm 'green' about you kissing that Blarney Stone ... 'tis the first St. Paddy's Day in a long time that Mrs. Mac has not made corned beef and cabbage. Hope your day was beautiful and the dinner as well. I hope you actually bought dry sherry instead of salt laden cooking sherry:)
Hope you had a happy St. Patrick celebration. I know I did.
Never thought it would be necessary to kiss the stone of Blarney twice.
Once you've got the gift of giving eloquent speeches, you don't let it go, or what??
I'll probably never get it, I'm too scared of heights.
The Shamrock, is a plant I hold on to for good luck.., and good beer. There must b pubs named The Shamrock all over the world.
