Hung Over?

Last night our spouse group had the monthly "Coffee" meeting, where we discuss upcoming squadron events, welcome new people, say goodbye to those leaving, and just visit with everyone.

St. Patrick's Day was the theme for the meeting, and there was green punch, and potato soup, and mint ice cream. During the meeting part of the evening I was sitting near the dessert table. Some sliced sweet-bread and cinnamon butter were calling my name. So while we talked about the upcoming Easter party I had a piece. Mmmm.. It was so good. It was like a spicey banana bread. So I had another piece. Then I got a piece for the girl sitting next to me. And I buttered one more for myself. I had a feeling it was best if I never knew the calorie count of all that buttery goodness. Little did I know...

Another girl sitting near me asked Barbie, the hostess, what kind of bread it was. It turns out it was Irish Wiskey Bread!!! Yikes! She said that the alcohol probably baked off, but......

I really had a great time. Usually I feel a bit awkward and just visit with one or two ladies that I know really well. But last night I had fun and enjoyed talking with a few ladies that I recognized but hadn't talked to before. Was it the Wiskey bread? hmmmm? we'll never know.... (anyone want the recipe?)

Irish Whiskey Bread IS good! LOL! Growing up, I'd snitch my Great-Grandmother's Rum Balls at Christmas time... I could never understand why Mom would get so upset... LOL!!!

All of your pictures in the snow are darling!

I'm enjoying checking your old posts....I never heard about getting your blog printed as a book. Great news.
Thanks for putting the favorites to check out. Quick question...
could you email me the recipe for the Irish Whisky Bread. There wasn't anything to click to get that recipe. I think the email you get saying this message is there for you to read will have my email address. Thanks so much.
