Celebrating Pat

Celebrating Pat

I do have some Irish in me, but I don’t like corned beef.

Which is why we had pork chops, baked potato and beets for dinner last night.

But, our local church (the church led by Eugene Levy … for real), is sponsoring a corned beef dinner this Saturday. You get corned beef and cabbage, boiled potatoes, carrots, bread, I think a salad and a dessert. All for $6!

So I told J we should get him that meal, because, even though he is not Irish*, he does like corned beef. I said I would eat all the veggies. A meal for 2 of us for $6? Definitely a steal.

He’s a little hesitant because it’s a fundraiser for the church and how will it look with us splitting one meal? “Maybe you should tell them you’re a vegetarian,” J said.

Great. So I’ll just lie to the little old nuns just to save $6. Do you think I’ll still get into heaven?

*So, as it turns out, J is Irish. And he says he knew that. And told me. Hmmm.

    J is 50% Irish and the rest a bit of mix. Way to go for knowing your heritage, J!!!

    Yeah, huh, apparently J has no idea what he is. I’ve known him 7 years now and he never thought he was Irish. He thinks French, English and Scottish maybe? Anyone want to clarify?

    I’ll fill you in…His mom’s side is 100% Irish, so that makes J 50% Irish. His dad’s side is a mix of German, French, and English.

    J – Get with it!

    Wow! That’s quite a mix! Thanks for filling me in!! Geez, if we ever had kids (and don’t get any ideas, because that’s not happening), they would be just about a little of everything … I guess a true American. I am Italian, Irish and Polish.

    PS – he said he knew his Mom was Irish, but not 100%!
