Cooking Adventure- St Patricks Day - Food

I know ... another cooking post ... seems like this month is just saturated with creative cooking opportunities and while I can't do a lot this month I am still gonna explore the options.

I've even bought some green clothes at the thrift store just for St Patricks Day. I suppose I should tell you why I am so determined to celebrate this particular day.

The Professor for all that he looks Chinese is actually an Irish National born not too far from Cladaugh and this year I feel the urge to celebrate him.  In October we will be celebrating 22 years of being a couple. Strange to think so many years have come and gone. Anyway, that's my excuse for going above & beyond this month and I'm sticking to it.

So what to eat to celebrate St. Patricks Day? Green foods come to mind but so do rainbow ones and of course, foods made famous by the country.

Rainbow Yogurt ParfaitFor Breakfast, I want to start with a rainbow and since this recipe contains Kiwi it's a double bonus, Rainbow Fruit Parfait and since breakfast is supposed to be the biggest meal of the day I would also add Fried Eggs In Green Pepper Rings

For Lunch, something light because dinner is going to be heavy, Shamrock Vegetable Skewers with Avocado Hummus, and some Colcannon

For Dinner, as perfect for the day as can be, Corned Beef & Cabbage and Green Irish Soda Bread with a little Colcannon on the side

For Snacks through the day Fruit Skewers & Yogurt, and Veggie Rainbow with Avocado Hummus,

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
