I made shepherds pie for dinner tonight. The kids were in no way placated by the fact that it is a traditional Irish dinner, no matter how gung-ho on the day they were. My youngest made herself a turkey and ham sandwhich. An hour wasted. But I did take some joy in forming a shamrock (of sorts) in the potatoes. The evening will be over following my long hot shower, cupcakes with green sprinkles, and the conclusion of the movie Splash! starring Tom Hanks.
