Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

I thought I would be little festive today and bring in some St. Patty's Day goodies to the office. Last night I made a batch of sugar cookies with Shamrock sprinkles and Peppermint Browines with mini York Peppermint Patties inside.

Well I brought the cookies today, which they were almost gone when I left early for a dentist appointment today... So I'll be bringing the brownies in tomorrow... because they do NOT need to be in my house! :oP

The brownies turned out really good... I used peppermint extract instead of vanilla ontop of the mini peppermint patties... Which I wish I could find in stores... I came across them in Big Lots, which probably explains why I can't find them. they were really tiny peppermint patties. I also found tiny raspberry filled chocolate chips too... If anyone knows if Hershey's still makes both products let me know!!!

We'll time to catch up on Chuck and enjoy my St. Patty's Day Brew that I picked up from my favorite Beer Store.. House of a 1,000 Beers... If you live in the Pittsburgh area, you should check them out!

Oh, and Let's not forget, St Patrick was a Roman living in Britain. His parents were Calpurnicus and Conchessa Romans living in Britan in charge of the colonies....So this means Saint Patrick WAS ITALIAN!!! :)


  1. I love House of 1000 Beers!!!

  2. Every time I am out towards New Ken I usually make a stop there. There are a few craft beer places where I live, but House of 1,000 Beers has them beat! If you like IPA, try 400 pound monkey. They had a few bottles left when I was there last.

  3. I'll have to remember that. I definitely love IPAs!
